Markus Schinwald - Marek with furniture

Marek with furniture, 2006

Author: Markus Schinwald

Real size puppet, clothes, furniture

Variable dimensions.

The artist achieves, through a puppet, a disturbing resemblance that seems like real life, which is not only the result of its appearance but also of its physical actions: a puppet nervously shakes its leg, repeating, apparently without intending to, certain patterns of movement.

What is truly a purely mechanical movement is seen as a neurotic behaviour. This type of obsessive movement, however, assumes a physical disposition that a puppet, an artificial inanimate body, does not have.
