People Bodies. Animal Heads. Alessandro Gallo
FOR SOME REASON by Alessandro Gallo
Ends 17 December 2016
What it is:
Two-foot tall hand-sculpted ceramic sculptures of people with animal heads - Lizards, Rams, Crickets, Birds and more... usually on their phones, but there's also a cricket surfing the net for porn, and a Monkey without pants so fair warning if you bring kids.
Why it matters:
We see ourselves in animals more than other people: A dog dying in a movie is always worse (Has anyone seen "I Am Legend'? I thought that was supposed to be a zombie movie, not the SADDEST THING EVER).
Anyway, like it or not, you'll see yourself, or that dude on the train, clearer than in a mirror.
