Mickey

Mask

Description

These same “basic and concise shapes” are found here in the six animals on display this year: the horse “Pegaso”, the monkey “Cita” (Italian spelling of Cheetah), the mouse “Mickey”, the sheep “Dolly”, the boar/pig “Babe”, and the buffalo/cow “Carolina”, which is this year’s sign.

If their names make them familiar, echoing mythological/literary/fairy-tale imagery, it is precisely the material- black, white and sometimes fluorescent -that takes us by surprise for the aesthetic vision it lends to these zoomorphic masks, making them different from Anna’s design approach to the animals (both domestic and wild) that were often her subjects, but always wonderfully and sympathetically ironic in their meditative philosophizing.
