Louise Hindsgavl’s white porcelain figurines (seen here at the Mindcraft exhibition at Zona Tortona in Milan) could seem to be typical at first glance, but it does not take long until the viewer realizes that the uncomfortable feeling that is creeping over is there for good reason. Hindsgavl’s work depicts creatures that have distorted human bodies and heads of animals, out of proportion. They are shown committing a variety of unusual acts: handling mirrors or ripping the heads off other smaller yet similar beasts. Is one saving others that are falling, or yanking them out of a hiding place? At first one wants to turn away, but is slowly overcome by a need to know more.
