Bone Dry (detail)

2013

Having previously translated the hobby of a relative into her own, Uncle Bill’s porn collection into an origami island of half-made and complete creatures, Galen continues to use this source material in Bone Dry. Here she has reconstituted body parts into a mass of movable creatures. By reanimating the inanimate paper-flesh she has freed them from their repose, while at the same time highlighting the dehumanising effect of pornographic imagery which reduces people to semi-conscious automata, to be manipulated into any desired pose. Bone Dry consists of 47 animates (200 parts) dimensions variable, printed matter on board and paper fasteners.
