As the excitement builds to the opening of ‘we miss you magic land! on 26 November 2011, follow our installation updates as we document the progress through weekly uploads.
Perth-based artist duo Pip and Pop (Tanya Schultz and Nicole Andrijevic) will create an immersive and vibrant environment for children and families to explore in this major Children’s Art Centre installation as part of GoMA’s fifth anniversary celebrations.
Drawing on children’s stories, creation myths, Buddhist cosmologies, video games and folktales, Pip and Pop create large-scale fantasy worlds coloured with a bright, often fluorescent palette, using cake-decorating tools, intricate layers of sugar, glitter, modelling clay and mirrors.
Pathways and peepholes will lead visitors to different worlds: a magical forest filled with strange flowers, vines, mushrooms and animals; a cosmic universe condensed into a darkened room with twinkly stars; and a volcanic lake with crystals, mist and liquid pools are just some of the creations waiting to be discovered.
we miss you magic land! is on display from 26 November 2011 – 4 March 2012 at the Children’s Art Centre, Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
In December 2011 the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) is turning five. You are invited to join in the celebrations. The anniversary program to mark this milestone for the Gallery and cultural life in Queensland includes exhibitions, regional touring program, acquisitions, major outdoor sculpture commission, Children’s Art Centre exhibition, and cinema program.
