"Perfectable World" by Sage Sohier

May 27, 2014

Sage Sohier’s project “Perfectable Worlds” addresses the varied ways in which humans create miniature realities in which they attempt to control every facet. We see an old woman in bed amongst dozens of dolls, a sculpturist in a confined space surrounded by his vast creation of fragmentary body parts, and a horde of parents bombarding a slickly dressed child. These hobbies that have grown out of proportion become life consuming, in each unique scenario Sohier captures a new way in which people might try to play god or seek perfection that the muddiness of our everyday life is bereft of.
