Neo-Surrealism: Boris Hoppek's depiction of women: objectification or liberation?

Hoppek's latex-pussy project. Is it an expression of female objectification or liberation? there's objectification no doubt, but he's playing it too obviously, which makes for a calmer critique. what i'm saying is that hoppek is debating a male POV (what else, that's what he is) of what objectification is, but objectification was never defined by men, but by women. "felt" by women not by men.
