Eason has embraced the act of childhood play to create a series of whimsical works, building a sensory explosion of vivid colour, humour and familiarity. Ranging from large-scale hanging drawings, tiny sculptures moving through the space and life-size inanimate objects spewing sugary odors from their pores, the artist invites us to enter her sensory world of imagination and recollect our own memories of joyful times.
Pippa Eason comments: “One of my furthest memories of childhood play was at my Aunty Janet’s house, tying string from the kitchen through to the living room. I hung my Aunty’s kitchen objects and ornaments from around the house. Looking back this was my first art installation and my fascination with objects surrounding me has continued throughout my life.”
Funny, blurry and everything hazy marks the conclusion of a two-year collaborative project with curator Mark Devereux in which they have worked together to question our intrinsic experiences of memory and how this impacts on our personalities.
Mark Devereux added: “We’re proud to partnering with PINK to realize this ambitious new body of works from Pippa. Having worked with her closely over the last 3-years, I’ve reminisced and recalled memories that are close to my heart. We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors to the exhibition and hearing some of your stories…”
Funny, blurry and everything hazy launches at PINK with an opening celebration on Friday 17 September (6-9pm). The exhibition then continues until Sunday 3 October. Visits to the exhibition and opening should be booked in advance.
