My Special Baby
Dates2019 - 2019
Initially widespread among art collectors, struck by the perfectionism with which they are made, Reborn Babies are now arrived in the cradles
of a huge number of “aspiring mothers” of all ages.
They are women who treat their dolls like real children, exchanging advice with the aim of growing them better. Women who contact nannies,
bring dolls to the doctor, feed them with real
baby food, use Nutella to simulate the poo.
The doll owners develop an extreme morbid attachment towards the latter, which leads them
to convince themselves and others (nanny, companion and potential pediatrician), to take care of them as if they were children of flesh and blood.
Reborn dolls are a deteriorated product of the times we live and of our fears, in many cases they represent a departure from real life with all that is negative.
