On Johansson Projects 5th Anniversary we present Jennie Ottinger’s “What to Do with Your Orphan: A Manual”, in which orphans partake in orphan-like activities. These include sleeping, playing dodgeball, and eating breakfast. But don’t be fooled into thinking an orphan’s life is just like yours or mine. Ottinger nonchalantly renders a mouth too far unhinged or a patch of flesh a bit too pink, making her gouache ghosts look almost human, but not quite. Horror invades the lullaby of the sweet, little orphan.
