These giant heads installed in galleries will screw with how you perceive humans

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.

These photos are actually a case of real-head-tiny-gallery, and are taken from a series by artist Tezi Gabunia called ‘Put Your Head into Gallery’.

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”.
