About the Book
Inspired by 18th C. porcelain figurines, Chris Antemann’s work employs a unity of design and concept to examine and parody male/female relationship roles. Characters and incidents build upon each other, forming a language that speaks about domestic rites, social etiquette, and taboos. Classic and romantic themes get a contemporary edge; elaborate dinner parties, picnic luncheons and festive celebrations set the stage for her twisted tales to unfold. Fine art photographer, Kendrick Moholt, instills the figures with their own lives via unique crops, perspectives and portrait angles that project the figures onto a human scale.
