Indepth Arts News:

"Modified Terrain: Patricia Piccinini and Christopher Langton"
2002-07-25 until 2002-08-31
Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane
Brisbane, QL, AU

From the 25th of July until the 31st of August the IMA will present the work of Patricia Piccinini and Christopher Langton in a show entitled Modified Terrain. This show curated especially for the IMA, will be an exceptional opportunity to see both of these artists together.

In Patricias work Swell three screened projections of undulating water, painstakingly rendered on a computer, transports us to the sea, leaving us dizzy and slightly nauseated. Five of Patricias famous car nuggets also feature in this show, their stunning, vivid colours and designs recalling intricate car and helmet designs. Patricias Panel Works, an extension of her Car Nuggets, are panels of fabricated automotive exteriors and are beautifully complimentary to Chriss works.

Chris Langtons work presents us with an idealised and exaggerated world. A large wall work entitled Wall Flowers features exactly that, flowers, yet these large motorised flowers are nothing like what you would find in a back yard. Refusing to die or stay still, Langtons flowers are picture perfect. In another piece, two large inflated Koalas, entitled, Soft Centre, invoke their iconic status whilst they loom large over us. Chriss Action Men are rather aptly titled; these three motorised figures move and dance when triggered by music.
