Geoffrey Farmer. The Surgeon and The Photographer. From Stage Presence, SFMOMA 2012.
Installation: paper, textiles, wood, & metal.
“… Farmer collaged photographic reproductions from books into 365 puppet-like sculptures, each approximately the size of a hand, thirty of which are included in this exhibition. The puppets bristle with multiple identities; each angle presents a new figuration as disproportionate and layered appendages cohere into forms. They are totemic but not possessed of any spirit. Rather, they are waiting for occupation and activation.“
