In French artist Bruno Catalano’s recent sculpture series Les Voyageurs, life-sized travelers carry luggages, bags and a serene expression on their face, seemingly oblivious to the fact that a huge part of their torso is missing. I saw the actual works at a gallery recently. It’s amazing how all the upper parts of the sculptures appear to be suspended in mid-air.
