Taos and Los Angeles, CA
Synopsis: A full-scale phone booth, sculpted entirely out of reclaimed cardboard and painted in black and white style that recalls vintage animation. The phone booth is a ghost from a bygone era, the pre-cell phone world in which there were private spaces within public places. Viewers are invited to engage directly with the sculpture, stepping inside and having a private moment within. The effect is surreal yet somehow familiar. A commentary on our modern culture, Dosshaus continues the tradition of Pop Art by engaging serious cultural questions in a fun and whimsical way.
Bio: Dosshaus is the artistic collaboration of Zoey Taylor and David Connelly, multidisciplinary artists whose work ranges from painting, sculpture, installation and performance to photography, film, and video. Their work was the subject of a February, 2016 solo show at Gregorio Escalante Gallery in Los Angeles, CA and has been widely featured online and in print, including Juxtapoz magazine, The French Huffington Post, Uppercase magazine, and the book The Art of Cardboard.
