Can a human create another human out of inanimate materials? German artist John Bock
puts his mind to the problem in his latest film, Im Schatten der Made (In the Shadow of the Maggot)
, a riotous, brutal feature commissioned by the Museum Tinguely -- a French institution devoted to Jean Tinguely
, the inventor of crazy mechanical sculpture -- and now on view at Anton Kern Gallery in Chelsea.
