The Prosopopoeias exhibition | Olivia Pintos-Lopez

Pintos-Lopez assembles figures existing as something between doll and puppet.

Exhibition Friday 23 January to Sunday 15 February 2015

Opening: Thursday 22 January, 6 - 8 pm
Artist talks: Saturday 31 January, 2.30 pm

A ‘prosopopoeia’ is the representation of an abstract quality or idea in the form of a person or creature. Using collected fragments and materials, Pintos-Lopez assembles figures existing as something between doll and puppet. These free-standing characters appear frozen in movement, their positions and stances forming relationships between each other and with the viewer. In their inanimate state they suggest their own unique histories but also hint at stories set to unfold.
