Marsian De Lellis
(In)/Animate Objects Panel #1


$80,000Asking Price


Media: Hand sewn and aged dolls: Fabric and thread with mixed media on wood panel. Marsian De Lellis is an interdisciplinary artist and writer who constructs installations and time-based visual narratives that memorialize obsessional lives. They combine dolls, artificial figures, performing objects, and elaborate costumes to investigate contemporary forms of animism, death, sexuality, and addiction. Both obsessive and playful, De Lellis’s work for this exhibition draws on a larger installation, which consists of over a thousand handmade dolls—damaged objects that show evidence of use, frailty, and their own impermanence. Their work invites the viewer to relate to the inanimate objects and contemplate the idea of identity: a repetition of a repetition for which there is no original. The objects aim to create authentic, shared, and tactile experiences in response to a life bombarded by an ever-shifting landscape of technologies.
