day 56 – four artist dolls by eyeball hurts and the medicine – circa 1997

Eyeball Hurts and the Medicine, were Michael Dumontier and Drue Langlois (1995-2000 ish). They produced drawings, handmade instruments, music tapes, dolls and performed as a ‘lo-fi band’, wearing masks to cover their identities. Each doll  had a name and a little ‘saying’ tagged to them.

Michael and Drue were also members of  the Royal Art Lodge (with Marcel Dzama and Neil Farber).

The Dolls (left to right)

Stillman;  “I meant to do my work today- But a brown bird came to visit me”

Sardonic;  “Why would I want to go to the park? A dog bit me there and I caught a cold there once”

Ogston-Ray;  “Build it up to knock it down!”

Unknown; tag lost
