The Man Behind Winkies
Medium(s) / Material(s)
Video DVD PAL loop 23 seconds.
The man behind Winkies from David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive (2001) is a beast that enters the artist’s mind when he feels uncanny in a place like the slaughterhouse. By mimicking the man and replacing the image with himself, Gazell attempts to kill the beast in exchange for something more familiar and less frightening.
Born 1979 in Stockholm, Jonas Gazell currently studies at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts.
