The KAWS Companion is having a tough day. He is wearing his emotions on his sleeve…pretty distressed, really bummed, almost put off. What has he seen or heard that brought him to such postures? Carved of wood eighteen feet tall they call attention to their plea. ALONG THE WAY features a pair consoling each other, heads hang low, arms cross over their backs in a side hug. It’s good to be there for each other, know who to count on, who feels your pain. And on the other side of the stage, AT THIS TIME can’t believe his eyes. It’s all too much, body language expresses disappointment in an arched spine and an exaggerated “I can’t look” pose.
