This undertaking is a collaborative project between Katie Green and Danae Brissonnet which explores the process of mask making, puppetry and costume design. During their stay at Dream Community in Taipei, Taiwan, both artists worked together to create a total of eight characters that are titled Stick Man, Lovers, Monkey, Bin Lang Monster, Bird Man, Tentacles, Sour Priss and Cage. These puppets were created with both purchased and found material including paper, metal, paint, thermoplastic, fabric, plants/flowers, leather, clay, and much more. The different themes of these characters are influenced by both artist’s experiences in Taiwan. Whether that be the Taiwan’s culture, landscape, and people, or both Katie and Danae’s individual interpretations of their experience here. These artworks are also an exploration of repurposing material.
Sour Priss is a pink soaked lady is a woman rotting with vanity. She is saturated in an excess of superficiality and she is blinded with this materialistic world. She searches to reconnect with her inner self and rediscover the essence of life.
