To me puppets represent the perfect vehicle for a caricature of identity. At one and the same time they reflect youth and playfulness as well as ordering functions like ideology, culture and capital. In other words, things that indexes to social places and things that are out of place. The tension that potentially emerges from a playful ambiguity between such order and exception is something that I find most interesting. This particular work, which in another form has also been part of the Apparatjik collective’s installations and performances at Serpentine Gallery and Neue Nationalgalerie, is an appropriation into three-dimensional space of an ad for baby pacifiers dating back to the constructivist era. A merged staging, that on one hand looks like a toy suspended in a void, while simultaneously comprising something that references generic structures linked to time and space. Overall: a problem in the form of a virtual puppet performance.
