Richard Gardner – Artist Statement – “Bebe Identity”
Photographed as thoughtful beings, the dolls are in inorganic representation of the conscious persona. Through the use of analogous imagery, the artist prompts the viewer to construct personal meaning and thus subjectively interpret the thoughts of each doll. In the end, the viewer is left with the discordant awareness that the thoughts they have attached to what they have observed is not and never will be a living thing. Evocative, repressive and disturbingly sexual, Bebe exposes the stark imperfections of humans through the safety of inanimate objects.
