Georges Segal wraps his models in plaster bandages. Removed from their mold, and reconstituted, his mummified figures turn into cohorts from the moon going trough a doorway, sitting on a rocking chair or playing pinball.

Segal started working with gauze soaked in plaster in 1960. “My wife wrapped me in bandages from head to foot. Everything shrunk when it dried. It was like being trapped in Band-Aids.” When taking off the pieces and recomposing them, he got the idea to mold daily life objects. He was immediately classified as a pop art next to Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. And the three share indeed an extreme interest for ordinary things. But Segal’s world remains very distinct. He looks at daily life for sociological and psychological purposes. For him, taking prints is a psycho-dramatic process during which the subject reveals itself.
