David Altmejd: The Vibrating Man

The Canadian sculptor showcases mesmerising yet disconcerting life-sized head sculptures

There’s something mesmerising and disconcerting about the sculptures of David Altmejd. Combining science, sci-fi and gothic romanticism, these insane distorted busts – often featuring two merging faces – is meant to be grotesque yet fascinating at the same time. Revealing the processes of growth and decay that take place inside our heads, the sculptures are made of materials like dazzling crystals or hollowed-out fruit, and are difficult to keep your eye on yet impossible to look away from.
