MANNEQUINS • DUMMIES

20.00

"I want that dress, that hair, that posture, those gestures, the ideal body the mannequin represents. Fashion is all about implication and these photographs coolly portray the vehicles that perform and advertise gender and desire.  

Here are some of Ave Pildas’s images; the bewigged head of a woman sitting in the shallow display space of a beauty school’s window; a black torso who’s most surprising detail is a barely visible belly button. The focus of these intensely packed photos is the ghostly, symbolic presence of the female body within the synthetic shell of a mannequin. Our minds reassemble the fragments of Pildas’s truncated female bodies; missing pieces don’t disturb us." –Kay Whitney
