no pushing, no stealing
Dolls with a wide smile lie carelessly thrown down on the floor in twisted poses.
Inspired by Haba retro-style toys – “Inventor for inquisitive minds”– they have become the choice for liberal American parents. Like the children’s book character "Raggedy Andy,“ they seem to come to life when nobody is present.
A metal structure strives upwards like a massive antenna out of the drawings’ frame, wrapped around by sloppy black-checkered canvas and sutures of blue vinyl wire. A hint of technocracy gives the innocent doll images something of snapshots of a monitoring camera in a children’s room. Where protection crosses the fine line into panopticism, imposed constraints petrify the unleashed souls and at the same time spark their inflammatory disobedience.
