Inside Out Teddybears


Kont Rogowski nimmt Teddybären auseinander, dreht ihnen das Innere nach außen und näht sie wieder zusammen. Das Ergebnis erinnert mich an das, was von diesem Pavian übriggeblieben ist, nachdem Brundle-Fliege ihn in „The Fly“ teleportiert hat und das ganze ist den Roboter-Bären, denen man das Fell abgezogen hat, nicht unähnlich.

Bears, is a series of portraits of the most unusual sort: ordinary teddy bears that have been turned inside out and restuffed. Each animal's appearance is determined by the necessities of the manufacturing process. Simple patterns and devices never meant to be seen are now prominent physical characteristics, giving each one a distinctly quirky personality: their fasteners become eyes, their seams become scars, and their stuffing creeps out in the most unexpected places. Together these images form a topology of strange yet oddly familiar creatures.
