Marcel Dzama "Puppets, Pawns, and Prophets" @ David Zwirner, London
Puppets, Pawns, and Prophets features recent and new work by Marcel Dzama, including three videos inspired by the game of chess, as well as puppets and masks based on the characters, drawings, collages, dioramas, and sculptural works. Dzama has become known for his proliﬁc drawings, which are characterized by their distinctive palette of muted browns, grays, greens, and reds. In recent years, the artist has expanded his practice to encompass three-dimensional work and ﬁlm and has developed an immediately recognizable language that draws from a diverse range of references and artistic inﬂuences.
