Matchstick Men by Wolfgang Stiller

Perhaps providing social commentary on the way in which everyday life tends to burn people out over time, German artist Wolfgang Stiller has created Matchstick Men. Appearing on their own and in matchbox-like “coffins,” the collection was created in Stiller’s studio by combining various head molds and bamboo wood scraps that were left over from a film production in Beijing. The charred remains of the Matchstick Men will be on display as a part of Stiller’s “Burnout” exhibition at Zurich’s Python Gallery beginning this Friday, March 8 and will remain available for viewing through April 20.
