Currently he has an exhibit called Presolaires at Galerie Daniel Templon in Paris. As part of the exhibit he has produced a series of marionettes made of iron, bottle glass, and crystal – materials often found in Tunga’s work – as well as pearls, sponge and amber. The puppets are offset by a collection of iron containers housing pieces of resin, silicon and steel.

You can see more of Tunga’s work at the gallery’s site.
