Epiphany of Objects: Maleonn’s Papa’s Time Machine

Volume 15, Number 2, March/April 2016
by Julie Chun

Article Description

Julie Chun's text reflects on the innovative handmade puppets developed by Shanghai artist Maleonn. Puppetry is an area of creative practice that has received scant attention from the art world, and Maleonn's incorporation of various found objects into the construction of his theatrical presentations demonstrates the kind of resourcefulness and imagination that is characteristic of the bricoleur.
