Stephan Balleux’s edgy sculpture ‘Bullet Proof’s Anatomy’ challenges our notions of infallibility and invulnerability, mocking modern technology’s promise of safety and order.  Nothing is bullet proof, nothing is invincible; no matter how we comfort ourselves with Kevlar, we are mortal and we will die.  And yet the skull is dripping in cheerful, vibrant, beautiful colors, as though to remind us that there is beauty in fragility.  A Belgian artist based in Germany, Balleux was recently the artist in residence at WARDLOW in Australia.
