Elena Fernándesz-Vegue Mateos: Mannequins in Installation Art: Technology and Conservation Zurück
Sprache: Original   -   Übersetzung
Zusammenfassung: Objects of everyday life are common in modern and contemporary art and play an important role for
conservators. In this context, the present thesis deals with mannequins in Installation Art. Three artworks of
the contemporary artists Jonathan Meese and Thomas Hirschhorn are presented and the mannequins
contained in these installations are examined from a conservation perspective. Following, options for
adhesion of glass fiber reinforced unsaturated polyester are investigated, as this plastic forms the basic
material for some of the mannequins in the sample installations. Therefore, lap shear strength tests are
carried out with selected adhesives and the results of the test series are evaluated along with further
properties of the adhesives. The findings of the scientific research are complemented with practical
application exercises. Finally, specific adhesives for the restoration of this material are recommended.
