Bozic and Tyler utilize mannequins with great effect to explore society’s obsession with self-image and romantic ideals. Through two separate series, the artists present multiple images to create a virtual world of staged moments of socially constructed behaviour. This invites a question, one that observers must answer for themselves: Are the mannequins set up to mimic us, or are we setting ourselves up to mimic them?
