Toy Ornaments

Liliana Porter's photographs depict a cast of characters that are inanimate objects, toys and figurines that she finds in flea markets, antique stores, and other odd places. The objects have a double existence. On the one hand they are mere appearance, insubstantial ornaments, but, at the same time, have a gaze that can be animated by the viewer, who, through it, can project the inclination to endow things with an interiority and identity.
