Giant heads have been installed at famous galleries including the Saatchi, The Louvre, the Tate Modern and the Gagosian, except they haven’t.
Though the idea of them being enormous, painstakingly-crafted replicas is unsettling enough, the viewers is left with a perhaps even stronger feeling of the uncanny when you realise the heads are real.
The miniature galleries were laser-cut from PV, plexiglass and paper, and allow exhibition visitors to make their head a piece of art installed next to Hirst, Rubens and Liechtenstein artworks.
Gabunia describes his style as ‘falsification’, with the series being designed to “trigger a dialogue with hyperrealistic issues”.
