paper dolls

Paper Dolls is an endurance piece based on the idea of a standardized female form attempting to complete repetitive tasks, the dolls here rushing back and forth through the gallery carrying loads of water in timed increments. As time runs out and water spills onto their dresses (made of tracing paper), their uniforms slowly decompose, leaving stained and tattered shells that are displayed for the duration of the exhibit.

CMAP is dedicated to providing a forum for contemporary puppetry, multimedia performance and artistic exploration in Detroit.
