Mauro Perucchetti (b.1949), Italy
Plaza Singapura Level 1, Singapore
The Jelly Baby Family series is rooted in Perucchetti’s interest in cloning some years ago, when he tried to capture the possible ambiguity and impersonality of a cloned human being. He later moved away from that concept and currently sees the Jelly Babies, with their childlike innocence, as an embodiment of the preciousness of family unity and the multicultural aspect of modern society.
