The Waiting, 2017, sculpture

The hybrid sculptures by Dutch artist Margriet van Breevoort are hyper-realistic and at the same time enormously alienating. A humanoid walrus waiting quietly on a bench, a lost traveller with deer eyes and antlers; the beings seem absorbed in their own world. The realistic execution tempts you to believe that these kinds of beings may really exist in the future. In the light of what is technologically possible today, this might just become reality.
