Artist Spotlight...Bodan Litnianski

Artist Bodan Litnianski built this amazing labyrinth of walls constructed entirely of trash, found objects, and creepy dolls. More on this website. Is this not the ideal venue for displaying creepy dolls? Dolls are just creepy, innately. If you keep them indoors, they just hang out and plot how to kill you :) 

I LOVE this one...

I learned about this artist from the documentary film, The Gleaners and I, in which filmmaker Agnes Varda follows a variety of rural and urban gleaners. Gleaning means picking stuff up off the ground that's otherwise bound for the trash, or already is trash. It could be following behind crop harvesters or rifling through dumpsters.
