••• “Since the success last fall of the film Tiny Furniture, artist Laurie Simmons, whose work has appeared at the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, among other institutions, has found herself recognized in new ways. ‘I went to see some films at MoMA and I sat down next to a young man the other night, and he said, ‘Excuse me, are you Lena Dunham’s mother?’ ‘ said Ms. Simmons, who is best known for her photographs of dolls and dollhouse interiors. […] Now, with her daughter’s first artistic breakthrough in the rearview, Ms. Simmons is having another one of her own with a new photography series. ‘The Love Doll: Days 1-30,’ which opens Tuesday at Salon 94 Bowery, features images of a high-end Japanese sex doll photographed in day-to-day scenarios—looking out at the snow in a parka and boots, lounging with a book, taking a bubble bath—all shot at Ms. Simmons’s house in Connecticut.” (Wall Street Journal)
