Autopsy by Carlo and Mary-Lynn Massoud
Carwan Gallery presents newly commissioned work from Carlo and Mary-Lynn Massoud at GUILD fair in Cape Town. Autopsy explores the fragility of life, inspired by South African traditional fertility dolls. After an investigation in the use and history of the dolls in the region, the Massouds wanted to highlight the different rituals between the tribes and how each tribe symbolizes the protection of the female egg.This innovative representation of the dolls, brought to a larger scale, brings a new way to express these rituals, in a domestic environment.
The collection is composed of a series of six unique stools/tables editions, realized in casted bronze with bespoke colored oxidations and ceramic.
