MOVING PICTURE WORLD is an exhibition of stop motion animation featuring the work of four women artists. The medium is utilised as a form of visual storytelling, through video, editing, sculpture, illustration, lighting design, as well as character and set construction. Artists Matilda Berger, Lucy Davidson, Amy Manson, and Kate Isobel Scott showcase the “behind the scenes” aspects of stop motion, adapting it for a group and silent cinema setting.
Their exhibition combines screen and sculpture, featuring intricate miniature sets and models to add another dimension to viewing. The process of creating the works themselves is an exercise in patience – a labour of love. Constant building, mounting, shifting, repeating, and manipulating of two and three dimensional elements create the enchanting effect of stop-motion animation.
MOVING PICTURE WORLD is loosely themed around artistic labour, biology and science, children’s television, music, and autobiography. It aims to be accessible and enjoyable for all ages.
