Angélique Aubrit & Ludovic Beillard make dolls, costumes, and sets that they use to tackle situations which feel absurd or painful. They have a shared interest in commedia dell’arte (the 16th century Italian theatrical genre), as well as in grotesque, burlesque, or science-fiction films. The artists shoot videos where characters are depicted in situations of desperation. The dolls’ wooden heads, hands, and feet appear to constrain their gestures and weigh down their casual attitude. Their inanimate faces devoid of expression convey a sense of uncanniness.
The exhibition Le spectacle brings together several series of dolls, whose stories are intertwined inside a set made of wallpaper.
