MANNEQUINS AND PUPPETS
Call for Exhibition - Accepted media: Photography, Digital Visual Design
Group Exhibition in Rome, Italy. November 2019
FREE ENTRY Artists are invited to submit 1 to 3 artworks addressing the theme
Accepted media: Photography, Digital Graphic
Aesthetic products that recall the human figure or fantastic figures, represented by dolls and puppets, up to the virtual productions of avatars, are products through which man since ancient times represents himself, his own world, his own stories, fears and fantasies. The act of control on these products its self becomes an object of reflection by artists starting from the first decades of the twentieth century, especially with reference to the protagonists of metaphysics and surrealism. Today the mannequin subject not only represents the individual who became an automaton and a production machine, but also an individual who became a compulsive consumer immersed in a world in which mass mediatic information and bombardments determine their own culture, lifestyles, customs and world view.
