Gilles Barbier is weird, but not in the pejorative sense

Gilles Barbier is a French artist and sculptor who makes life-like sculptures of obscured humans that sort of remind me of John Currin paintings. I first saw Barbier at the Whitney show, The American Effect in 2003,where he presented a series on aging American superheros that were confined to a nursing home.
