NGV Australia, Federation Square
28 Oct 16 – 25 Apr 17
Pip & Pop – the pseudonym of Perth-based artist Tanya Schultz – creates brightly coloured installations that celebrate the traditions of storytelling. Works by Pip & Pop encourage viewers to revisit the unbridled wonder associated with childhood through the use of a dizzying array of materials. The artist combines glitter, stickers, washi tape and powdered sugar to create magical worlds inspired by fictional lands made of food, such as The Land of Cockaigne (a land of plenty in medieval myth). This new commission by Pip & Pop for the NGV, supported by MECCA Brands, is an immersive, mythical landscape involving kaleidoscopic wallpaper and handcrafted sculptures.
The NGV thanks Jo Horgan and MECCA Brands for making this work possible.
