German artistic duo Course (Mark Landwehr and Sven Waschk) are currently exhibiting their latest US solo show at Rotofugi Gallery in Chicago. The show is titled "Souls Gone Mad" and it features new, handcrafted, sculpted resin and fiberglass figures. While some of the figures are single pieces there are a few available in limited runs. All original pieces are available exclusively through Rotofugi.
"Souls Gone Mad" as described by the artists; "The exhibition show cases new sculptures and photographs that will transport you to a unique world inspired by vague reminiscences of children's dreams. The works blur between dreams, nightmares and reality, telling a story of violation and influence on innocent souls."
The centerpiece of the show is a life-sized installation titled "Soul Shaker", a piece inspired by "The Nightmare" by Henry Fuseli. "Soul Shaker" is a dark version of the mechanical horse rides that used to be in front of supermarkets and visitors are given tokens to start the ride.
Course debuted their exclusive resin figure "Dark Sorrows" at the exhibit. The figure 9.25" tall figure is solid resin and is limited to 100 pieces. The figure depicts the character "Fever" cowering and wearing a horse mask. The piece is pictured directly below. "Souls Gone Mad" will run through December 3 at Rotofugi Gallery In Chicago.
