Marie-Ange Guilleminot: My Dolls (Mes Poupées)
June 9, 1996 - July 7, 1996Marie-Ange Guilleminot's video My Dolls is being shown in conjunction with a recently purchased work by this young Parisian artist entitled Navels (also on display in this gallery). Navels consists of plaster casts made on the bodies of seventy-four of Guilleminot's acquaintances. In My Dolls, the artist again uses the process of moulding, raising similar issues of intimacy and identity as she works the pliable blobs that are her "dolls." Programming in the Video Gallery is made possible by the generous support of the Women's Committee of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. My Dolls is lent courtesy of Galerie Chantal Crousel, Paris.
