When Happiness Ruled

Pip & Pop | 12 November – 24 December

Pip & Pop is obsessed with representations of paradise, illusions and wish-fulfilment described in folktales, mythologies and cinema. Her wonderfully immersive and colour-saturated dreamscapes draw wide inspiration from the edible fantasy world of Cockaigne, platform video games and Japanese stories of spirits residing within objects and nature.

This is a long-awaited hometown solo exhibition for Pip & Pop, a Perth artist whose pleasure aesthetic has charged imaginations nationally and internationally for over a decade. Installed within the Central Galleries, the expansive body of work utilises the artist’s first-time forays into kinetic sculpture. The result is a magically animated and kaleidoscopic landscape in which mountains can move and objects become possessed.
