So he pulled the right levers

So he pulled the right levers


For this new exhibition the sculptor Brian Griffiths has invited a number of friends, family and colleagues (mostly real) to make puppets. Each person has been asked to make a puppet of themselves - a self portrait, a kind of imposter or impersonator, like all representations.

The puppet in its purest form and motion resembles something of the artifact, tool, machine or musical instrument. They are contradictory things to be looked at and spoken through, that are animated and brought to life via imagination and will.

All the puppets at Artlink Hull are made by puppet novices, from individuals with radically different making experiences and resources. Purity and traditions may come a cropper and things may just stay dead.

An exhibition as part fantasy, part social experiment, with the theatrical gusto of LET’S-PUT-ON-A-SHOW! Griffiths considers ideas and forms of self-presentation, where intimate content gets swept along with the impossibly dramatic.

A show that hopes for hilarious disappointments, irresistible charm and some visitors.
