“Surveillance from the Doll House” is a group show with work from Nathania Rubin, Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons and Karen Yasinsky. Mireille Mosler Ltd. is hosting this exhibit that focuses on contemporary animation and puppetry.
In Nathania Rubin’s rattletrap drawn animation, “My Girl: A Case Study” (above) caricatures of Anne Frank and Sigmund Freud act in proxy for the artist’s personal proclivities and as signifiers for something larger.
“Still Life with Cows” (above and below) from Karen Yasinsky is a study of a tiresome existence. The nonlinear piece tells the story of a paralyzed doll and her consort. Animation for children runs at a frenzied pace, when this gait stagnates, the attitude of the medium is transformed.
