inspiration: mondongo

The Argentine art collective Mondongo inspires me. Their highly tactile pieces don't inspire me to actually create anything by hand, but looking at this work encourages me to get off my lazy ass and start focusing on my real job so that I can one day afford to buy a piece.
I've seen a few pieces IRL and they're awe inspiring and slight folkish. They create these large scale fantasies by collaging feathers, cotton thread, plasticine, hair, freeze-dried slabs of meat and biscuits. As unsettling as it sounds, their work still manages to be reminiscent and beautiful.

I TOTALLY SAW THEIR WORK IN BUENOS AIRES IN '06 - it was all portraits of people (they have one of che) made of "materials" that relate to them. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT AND AM SOOOOO GLAD YOU PUT THEIR WORK ON YOUR BLOG BC I TOTALLY FORGOT THEIR NAME!!!!
