New! Fish figurines by Mimi Berlin. Toys for Girls from the Bagatelle series. Below we present: “Used Fish” and ‘Fish Lamp 3’! These fish figurines, well actually they are whales, are based on our classic Fish Lamp in black. The ‘Used fish’ and the ‘Fish lamp 3’ are assembled with hard-plastic (second hand found, early plastics, tupperware, rubber and a led-light.) The tails are made of pressed glass. Both figurines are unique and signed pieces.
At first glance the ‘Important Bagatelles de Mimi Berlin‘ seem like unpretentious objects, fast compositions and even trifle maybe. That’s all true; the statuettes are light in style and come with a very mellow character, they are bagatelles. Why are they ‘Important Bagatelles’ we hear you ask. Well: the important part lies in the fact that the sculptures are carefully made as a source of stimulation. First the stimulation of the basic human senses. Then you are supposed to glide into a state of body awareness which is, ideally, lust.
‘Toys for Girls’ is dedicated to Mother Nature; no natural materials whatsoever are used. We try to clean-up the globe by using discarded plastic and glass. And we like to keep things positive in the age of the ‘plastic soup’. So, we celebrate the inventions of early-plastics like bakelite and celluloid, Also by finding the beauty in perspex, rubber, and other non-biodegradable plastics. But only in so-called “feminine” pastel colors. Remember, this series of statuettes is dedicated to Mother Nature, not Father Nature.
