Laughing Squid recently featured German artist Wolfgang Stille and his haunting “Matchstickmen” installations. The large-scale sculptures, resembling burnt matches, have a jarring quality to them when you realize that they are indeed topped with figures of human heads. The more one observes this space, the more disturbing it becomes, largely because of the way the heads are separated from their bodies, and the minor detail that they appear to have been set on fire. The piece invites you to question it: who are these figures meant to represent? Who was the one that struck the matches against the impossibly large matchbox?
