Horka Dolls: An Interview with Klaudia Gaugier
THE DUALITY OF MEN, THE INESCAPABLE SUBJECTIVITY OF ART, AND A DEMIURGE’S TRUTH
When you look at any of Klaudia’s dolls, what do you see? Do you see a sinister creature staring back at you, or amidst its dark elements, do you see a glimpse of light? Klaudia Gaugier possesses a remarkable talent. Unnervingly beautiful and profoundly unique, her dolls speak great volumes. Fascinated with the duality of man, Klaudia creates her dolls in man’s image. She reasons that what people see in her artwork says more about the viewer than it does about her. She forces you to think about your own relationship with the artwork, where you stand, where you are coming from, and how you have come to view her dolls in such a way. She makes you think – a sign of a truly engaging artist.
