Middle Gate Geel '13
Human behaviour is the central theme in Enrique Marty’s oeuvre, which spans across paintings, sculptures and video installations. The couple Alberto and Angelica depicts two naked dolls, cast from life size moulds, that have been decorated with tattoos and human hair giving them a mythical appearance. The stories in the tattoos that cover the bodies, refer to the Alberto and Angelica’s individuality, their characters, their background and interest. Both dolls have two razor sharp knives as weapons. The sculptures look like modern day cave dwellers: a direct denunciation of today’s society which is driven by mass consumerism.
