Statement

 

things of note about the works seen here

 


My Dollywogs and Collectables subvert racist terms and make them into nuanced collectors items to be anthroplogically photographed and sold again.Their titles are coloqial proverbs providing wisdom or caution.For example,Dollywog# 6 Landmine Barbie,”a stumble is not a fall.Or Dollywog # two faced,”the tongue and the quarrel now and then


Each wog comes with a lifetime guarantee of hair,or nail,or shell, replacement.It is as, the Wog marketing department puts it, “man made”the human touch a unique piece


If anything,the Dollywogs seek to replace and poke fun at the race dolls that are traded as genuine replica of ethnic artefacts.


They become trophies photographed, as well as scultptures on display. Playing on old curiouso items and bizar finds. Giving themselves their own valued signifier in the form of name and ingredient.
