Australian artists Gillie and Marc
first introduced ‘Dogman’ in 2009
with their infamous sculpture
Good Boy, which made headlines
around the world because it
combined the ancient mythology
of cynocephaly – the placement
of a dog’s head on a human body
– with full-frontal nudity.
An expression of the canine qualities Gillie and Marc admire
and wish to see more of in mankind, the Dogman hybrid
represents honesty, non-judgement, unselfishness,
When Dogman met his mate ‘Rabbitgirl’ in 2010, he found
another free-spirited, good-natured creature that didn’t shy
away from emotional availability. Rabbitgirl, like Dogman, was
ready to take on the world with somebody.
The pair have been together – living, loving, travelling and
learning – ever since. They are wildly different on the outside, but on the inside they are one.
