"Dada Barbie", mixed media assemblage sculpture
“Dada Barbie” was created in a workshop conducted by Jessica Poor. DB’s back story is that following her breakup with longtime beau Ken, she decided to embark on an adventure to the city. Leaving her comfortable suburban life behind, she equipped herself with a new wardrobe, vintage camera and plunged into the excitement of urban exploration. Along the way she tangled with King Kong, met a soldier sent to intervene in the fracas, but also met a mystery man in a cafe. Her decision now – which one to pick.
