Toy Art Gallery is proud to present “New Toys for Melancholics”, a solo show by Pop Surrealist sculptor and philosopher GABRIELS. Polished hand-crafted bronze, life-like glass eyes, and scores of tiny internal intricate elements and organs are just the beginning as you delve into GABRIELS embryonic sculptures.
“Let it be clear: these are not sculptures, but toys and more precisely prototypes of Toys for Melancholics. They aspire to the industrial production on a large scale and to the indefinite propagation, in proportion to the planetary diffusion of the anguishastic-desperative Weltanschauung and of the consequent – very legitimate, although not absolutely incontrovertible – propensity to suicideness. In this sense, our Toys for Melancholics scrupulously respect all the standards of global melancholy quality in a petrified primeval landscape, addressing courageously to a public of adults, kiddies and lithopaedia.”
We invite you to join us for the “New Toys for Melancholics” opening at 7pm on May 6th with Paolo Gabrielli in attendance. Show runs until April 30th.
