Using collected fragments and materials, Pintos-Lopez assembles figures existing as something between doll and puppet. These free standing characters appear frozen in movement, their positions and stances forming relationships between each other and with the viewer. In their inanimate state they suggest their own unique histories but also hint at stories set to unfold.

Artist talks: Saturday 31 January, 2.30 pm
