Jordan Wolfsons Dancer from the Uncanny Valley

Der provokative Crossmedia-Künstler Jordon Wolfson hat anlässlich einer Ausstellung in der New Yorker Galerie David Zwirner zusammen mit einem Special FX Studio aus Hollywood eine Animatronic-Pole-Tänzerin der seltsamen Art entwickelt. Hinterlässt auf jeden Fall einen bleibenden Eindruck. :-/

Presented here for the first time, Wolfson’s animatronic sculpture combines film, installation, and performance in the figure of a curvaceous, scantily clad woman covered in dirt marks and wearing a witch mask. Unlike the artist’s two-dimensional subjects, this life-size character was developed in close collaboration with a special effects studio in California used by major Hollywood productions. The woman can be encountered on a one-on-one basis in a mirrored room in the gallery, creating a different kind of viewing experience that intensifies the importance of the gaze found throughout Wolfson’s work.
