That we only regret the chances we don't take is a cliché, but it's true. Every one of us is dogged by fantasies of what might have been if only we'd just gone for what we wanted. Artist Annie Attridge's exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art, London, Should of Could of Would of, brings to life fantasies of sexual missed opportunities in miniature porcelain sculpture. The sculptures depict women with scribbled faces and fantastically bulbous breasts having sex in a variety of positions, and each is displayed atop a concrete plinth, quite literally putting these daydreams of missed encounters on a pedestal. Anyone's who's ever caught the eye of someone on the subway, only to kick themselves later for not having the guts to make a move can relate to these works, and perhaps in viewing Attridge's Should of Could of Would ofs, find catharsis of their own.
