raquel paiewonsky: 'mutants' at venice art biennale 09

'mutants' by raquel paiewonsky

raquel paiewonsky of the dominican republic is exhibiting her installation 'mutants' in the
latin american pavilion at the biennale.
unknown worlds populated by rare species and different races make their appearance
in 'mutants'. dolls are true hybrids, crosses between 'a toy and a fetish, between real
and pretend, between simulacrum and the fantastic'. they create a metaphor of how our
identity is perceived with its polyhedric wealth of facets. these soft-bodied dolls from
which the artist has extirpated, reproduced or replaced pieces with sponges and nylon
stockings are part of her universe: contorted, deformed, extravagant bodies that address
issues such as identity, sexuality, the body, life and death, the human and the animal — bodies,
gracious or terrifying, that place the spectators face to face with their own fears and fantasies.
