Slash Panache: GALLOP WALLOP presented by Slash Panache

  • Lord Coconut (Mitchell House) 358 Lonsdale Street Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

‘Slash Panache: GALLOP WALLOP’ is another instalment in an ongoing collaborative project between textile artist Louise Meuwissen and animation artist Milo Gluth. Their virtually hosted and theatrically installed embroidertations are a celebration of the overlaps between these distinct and notoriously laborious Crafts. Presented by Lord Coconut for Craft Cubed 2017 ‘Slash Panache: GALLOP WALLOP’ focuses upon the similarities of these seemingly disparate art forms, and celebrates the strength found in their differences. In a visual amalgamation of style, Gluth’s hand drawn and digitally generated animated renderings are comprised of imagery of Meuwissen’s textile and embroidered work. These elements have been extensively edited – spliced, enlarged, replicated, synthesised – to produce imagery that is graceful and ugly, culminating in spectacular and horrific unified entities. Together they have created abstracted hybrid creatures that venture the planes of an alternative universe. These creatures are viewed from growing to galloping. 

Closing celebration Monday 21 August, 5:30-7:30pm. All Welcome!
