A while back I got to know this fine woman. She’s a young Danish artist currently living in Berlin. A hundred pictures ago she started an amazing ongoing instagram series portraying the somewhat emotionally detached couple Barbie and Ken and their yearnings, longings and observations in the big city.

Happy 100’th to you Marie, and to your two tireless verfremdungs-explorers! The doll pictures are amazing and viewed as a series they are funny, quirky, touching, and thought provoking. Maries doll pictures are here – here’s one of my favorites!

So having followed Marie’s doll project, I felt sorry for Barbie and Ken. I thought they needed a vacation. They needed to unwind and connect with people. So Barbie bleached her hair and went to camp with us (unfortunately Ken couldn’t make it as he had been drowned in a makeshift garden pond by my little nephew).

I give you:
