Golan Levin & Andrea Boykowycz's "unfunny" finger puppets
Golan Levin has some very funny Dutch masterwork recreations on his site. Even funnier is what he has to say about trying to show them at a Dutch art show:
My partner Andrea made all of the costumes and spent a long time crouched underneath a cardboard box while I carefully positioned her fingers. It was a new experience for me when the show's curator refused to exhibit the work he had commissioned, even though it was already listed in the catalogue. The explanation he provided was that the photos "weren't funny". About a week later I received an even more puzzling request to exhibit the project in a Taiwanese digital art festival.
