Creepy Porcelain Dolls by Jessica Harrison

British figurine artist Jessica Harrison has taken creepiness to the whole new level. Shain’s dolls are for kids! “The work isn’t intended to be confrontational, but work dealing directly with the body is often interpreted in this way precisely because of this shared experience of the body, as people can see it as a kind of attack on themselves, as a body is something we all have and recognise. The humour that appears in the work is often my way of balancing this feeling of confrontation, aggression, or what people might see as grotesque. Sometimes people are more open to looking at something that appears humorous, and hopefully if they look for a little bit longer then maybe they will find other meanings in the work.”
