Nina von Meiss (1978) Dominique Vigne (1981) and Christina Pfander (1980) are three young women who live and work in Zürich, Switzerland. They met nine year ago at art college and since then they have made art together under the name Mickry 3. They make comic book-inspired drawings, and they have also turned these into small three-dimensional figures made from paper mache or other cheap materials like paper and felt pen. Their installation "Mickry 3 Supermarket" was a great success.
The sculptures shown here are from their current exhibition at Esther Eppstein's message salon downtown gallery in Zürich (April 28 - May 13). Inspired by an exhibition of Rodin they are made to look like real, heavy bronze sculptures. Mickry 3 humorously celebrate Rodin's Körperkult by looking at it with a feminist, revealing eye.
