Between a Puppet and a Human
Between a Puppet and a Human (2006): In Halabi's piece, the viewer is puzzled about whether the figure is a puppet or a human being. It is the possibility of a visual memory of neurological spasms, the roots of which came about in 2003. These cases collided with the reality of life in plastics. Clear, mechanical lines have entered into the organic body to build its fabric and to create a possible nervous, spasmodic, painful, ironic plastic figure -- closer to a puppet.
