Bronwyn Horne - A[chrono]mation
Bronwyn Horne - A[chrono]mation seeks to reveal how animations are constructed. Unravelling the animation techniques behind the wild kinetics of cartoon characters like the Warner Brothers’ Bugs Bunny, this innovative exhibition traces the construction of movement which is usually invisible to the audience in real-time. The exhibition also goes beneath the frames of the ‘Golden Age’ of animation, focusing on the work of directors like Chuck Jones and Jack Kinney who pushed the boundaries of animation in their era.
Paul Emmanuel - Men and Monuments
For the past decade, in an ongoing project titled The Lost Men, renowned artist Paul Emmanuel has challenged conventions around war memorials. He has questioned which soldiers are memorialised and which erased, and the stereotypes around soldiers and masculinity. Artworks from all three iterations of The Lost Men are featured in Paul Emmanuel – Men and Monuments. The works were envisioned as ‘counter-memorials’. Large silk and voile banners serve as temporary monuments – highlighting vulnerability – an aspect of masculinity so often denied by history and society.
