Poses - Yolanda Dominguez

"Yolanda Domínguez is a Spanish artist who works from what is disquieting, handling situations that are sensitive and disturbing for the spectator. Her aim is to generate social criticism and a reaction." She definitely succeeds in her piece above called Poses. There is a sense of humor in the work that keeps me watching and waiting to see how people interact with these "models" that seem to have had mental breakdowns. But in the end the public gives them exactly what they've always wanted... they take pictures of them and give them plenty of attention. funny.
