The story of Carlo Collody was a great inspiration when creating the toys for the
exhibition "The truth about Pinocchio"
as I wanted to show two key moments in this tragic story.
The first Art Toy, "Solstice", shows a lively and proud Pinocchio,
and represents the first years before becoming Pinocchio a puppet.
This Art Toy reflects the "real", the natural, the pure spirit of a being,
a reflection of the intact innocence at the beginning of life.
The second toy, "Equinox" is the vision of the last minutes in the life of Pinocchio,
who destroyed by greed and guilt decides to end his life
to silence the voice of conscience, "Jiminy Cricket,"
who is killed by Pinocchio as he was an obstacle to their ambitions.
Because at the end of his days Pinocchio is a corrupt and alienated being
who lied and killed anyone who crosses his goals.
For this show I have used MR.MALACOPIA!
This versatile character allows the application of various techniques for customization.
They are Art Toys manufactured and fully textured
and painted by hand and with airbrushed and with kitbash applications.
