Born in 1924 in New York, George Segal lived and worked in New Jersey, USA, until his death in 2000. His tableaux are reflections on the individual and her/his place in 20th century society. He plays on the permeability of spaces, inviting the viewer to enter into a dialogue with anonymous and motionless figures. He pioneered the application of plaster bandages to the model's body, a technique he used to reveal the evocative power of gesture and its poetical, social, erotic and political dimensions.
