Mechanical fragility: Dolls by Yotsuya Simon – gallery

February 8, 2011

Japanese artist Yotsuya Simon dedicated almost his entire life to studies on human body. I don’t have to mention that Japanese surrealism, jazz music and seeing Hijikata Tatsumi’s Butoh performance have influenced Yotsuya Simon‘s aesthetics and body of work.

Bodies of his dolls are tangible and fragile, open and humorous, yet very strong in expressiveness.  Probably the most intriguing sets of contemporary angels I have ever saw.
