In their latest work, ‘Ecce Homo Tesco’, Doyle and Mallinson present a range of horribly convincing and uncomfortably satirical dioramas, a conflation of contemporary concerns and debates. Dark yet humorous, modern props and scenarios are made to strange references loaded with pathos, mirroring society and our times: ‘Behold the lazy, track-suited lager swilling man’.Museum mounted skeletons and display cases of fake artifacts are installed in a celebration of regional museum displays and scientific hoaxes. Drawing on source material from bigfoot movie footage, fossil remains and commercial advertising, Doyle and Mallinson expand on ideas explored previously in ‘Ecce Homo Erectus’ recently shown at Venlo Stadhuis, NL.
