Passing through a steel fence, one enters a secluded space occupied by 22 ashen-faced, mute dolls. About ten of them are automated and perform repetitive actions, condemned to an eternal monotonous existence.

About

Passing through a steel fence, one enters a secluded space occupied by 22 ashen-faced, mute dolls. About ten of them are automated and perform repetitive actions, condemned to an eternal monotonous existence. MONDO CANE can be seen as a Contemporary Museum of Folk Art in which the human figure is on show, in a society where inertia and apathy reign supreme.  

Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys are seasoned hands in the creation of fictions filtered through hyperreality. They are intrigued by modern society’s current state of psychosis. The dolls in MONDO CANE are living proof of this.
