Hey now! Here's some pretty excellent news!
Greedy Hen were recently commissioned by Artbank to create an animation for their collection.
Artbank, if you were wondering, is the largest buyer of contemporary Australian art in the country.
And what makes them so damn interesting is that they promote Australian culture by making the collection available for rent. And then in a two thumbs up move, they reinvest their clams straight back into it.
So basically their collection blows our brains with artworks by Australian artists who we dig and admire immensely. We really are very humbled and stoked to be included in it.
Below is our 55 second animation.
It's called 'Morning Meeting Hallucination'
Syrupy, textural and surreal in flavour, the work evokes a momentary lapse of concentration.
You may have noticed a sudden increase in botanical imagery in our work all of a sudden.
Well our studio is currently under attack by vines and they're creeping into our brains.
To make the animation we took photos of Kate's hands wiggling, then printed and cut every single frame. They looked like hundreds and hundreds of spirit fingers.
We then took photos from above, collaging paper cut outs onto layers of glass.
Morning Meeting Hallucination
can be seen at our exhibition Go Forth, at Gallery 2010 until Sunday 16th Dec (details below)
or on the Artbank vimeo channel.
