The Galatea Loop


Donna Szoke

The Galatea Loop

The sense of the spoken word, revealed but forever unintelligible Donna Szoke’s installation, a work of sculpture topped by a praxinoscope which animates 24 castings of a mouth, is based on the Greek myth of Pygmalion who carved the form of a woman from ivory and promptly fell in love with her. The artist’s feminist sensibility takes issue with the source: the mouth appears to speak, but the meaning of its words remains a mystery
