Exposition

Spin, Puppet, Spin: Drawing Estrangement (2019)

William Platz

About this exposition

en
The life studio is an eccentric place and this exposition is populated by eccentric characters. The drawings and photographs contained in this research have all been created by studio puppets. Each puppet's awkward methods of working — stabbing, pulling, twisting a clutching hand — magnify the work’s unorthodox strategy. Puppets will illuminate the idiosyncrasies, malfunctions and estrangements typically surfeited in the life studio’s private sphere. This research responds to the work of E.T.A. Hoffmann (‘Spin, puppet, spin’) and George Méliès; puppet/art hybrid exhibitions; the Puppet Master horror franchise; and the lay figure of Gustave Courbet. Puppets are not alien in the life studio. Although they were typically concealed in the artist's process and hidden from public view, they were common fixtures until the 20th century. This exposition estranges artists and models from the life drawing apparatus and invites puppets to make pictures.

Det engelske term life studio refererer til et atelier, hvor nøgne modeller poserer for kunstneren. Dette er et excentrisk sted, og denne udstilling er fyldt med excentriske karakterer. De tegninger og fotografier der har været anvendt i researchen, og de endelige værker, er alle skabt af forskellige forankrede mannequiner i et life studio. Hver mannequins akavede gestik; hvordan den stikker, trækker eller vrider sig, understreger arbejdets uortodokse strategi. Mannequinerne vil derved belyse den idiosynkrasi, fremmedgørelse og de funktionsfejl, der typisk kommer til udtryk og observeres i et life studios private sfære. Denne forskning er en reaktion på E.T.A Hoffmanns arbejde (’’Spin, puppet, spin’’) og George Méliès’ dukke/kunst-hybrid udstillinger; The Puppet Master horror franchise og mannequinfiguren af Gustave Courbet. Mannequiner er ikke fremmede i life studio’et. Selvom de typisk var gemt i kunstnerens proces, og væk fra offentlighedens skue, var de almindeligt inventar indtil det 20. århundrede. Denne udstilling fremmedgør kunstnere og levende modeller fra tegnekunsten og inviterer mannequiner til at skabe billedet.
