art couple double parlour creates these amazing small scale sculptures of strange children. there is something so appealing to me about the liminal, metamorphic space of childhood, i always find myself attracted to fiction and movies where there is a bit of a 'coming of age' or strange/ haunting tale involving children, i.e. 'the devil's backbone' or 'pan's labyrinth.' as much as i also love being an "adult," i miss the days of dangling in trees and coming home with leaves or seaweed in my hair and skinned knees; anything seemed possible, magic was always present. there is something about double parlour's works that make me remember this wild, important time in my life living near the sea.
