DESCRIPTION

Sixteen found objects–much-loved, yet nevertheless discarded dolls, all mass-produced during the 1930s through the 1950s–were photographed on a stage constructed by the artist. Large scale photographic prints are presented along with short paragraphs of text that is abstruse in meaning and hazy in appearance. The project plays with lost and reclaimed identity, queries authenticity, toys with the artist’s intervention/intention to inject uniqueness into mass-produced objects, and calls into question the systems of presentation and representation. A limited edition book, published in conjuction with the exhibition will be available in the gallery.
