Medical Diagram Portraits Created from Found Objects by Edwige Massart and Xavier Wynn

May 16, 2014

Christopher Jobson


With an assortment of trinkets, doodads, and thingamajiggers worthy of the mightiest junk drawer or flea market bin, artist husband and wife Edwige Massart and Xavier Wynn turn collections of random objects into medical cross-sections of the human head. Aptly titled Heads, the duo says the compartmentalized sculptures are meant to be surrealist explorations of portraits created from memories and found objects. When exploring the contents of each piece it’s fun to imagine just who each person might be based on the things found inside. You can see much more over on their website and on My Amp Goes to 11.
