George and Gilbert 2009

George and Gilbert

Two near-identical walking dolls I bought in a charity shop in Cardiff as fodder for the Biting Machine. When I took them back to the studio I started undressing them in order to acess the mechanism.

When pulling their pants down, I quickly realised that the dolls had another function: urinate, with a detailed, articulated, little penis.

It just made them more special, and gives off a certain edge when they follow each other closely, before being mowed down by the Biting Machine.
