The Rise of the Tangled Rock Goddesses

When is a mannequin torso more than a mannequin torso? When artist Corinne Henderson gets ahold of it. For an upcoming show at The Gypsy Parlor, Henderson has meticulously transformed six ordinary mannequin torsos into intricate and vibrant works of art.

I designed a series of patterns on each one and all of them are named after my favorite female rock stars, such as Patti Smith and Shirley Manson,” said Henderson. “I’m also known to create art on vinyl records (see inset) and created this series as a side project after I went through a dark period in my life a year ago. I had lost everything in my life and had to start over again. I created these mannequins as a way to rebuild my life and to put myself back together again. I also began in to create these during the #metoo movement as my way to express my personal experiences. The mannequins were featured on one of the main stages at the Music is Art festival – now everyone will have an opportunity to see them up close and personal at Gypsy Parlor.”
