Tari Nakagawa makes his gorgeous, disturbing dolls in Sapporo, Japan.
He studied under Ryo Yoshida (translated page) at Doll Space Pygmalion.
This video documents an exhibition of his “necro nymphs.” The music kicks in at about 40 seconds.
Despite the name, Nakagawa’s dolls seem alive–their stares more soul-plumbing than vacant.
Except when they’re sleeping. Or are they?
