NN is delighted to launch the Northampton Multiverse season with a large-scale, site-specific new work by Pip & Pop. Pip & Pop is also known as the Australian artist Tanya Schultz. Her practice ranges from installation and painting to wall-work and sculpture. She works using fine sand, sugar, origami, plastic figures, glitter, lights and found objects to create intricate, gloriously technicoloured worlds.
Margaret Cavendish’s 1666 forerunner of science fiction The Blazing World forms the starting point for Tanya’s research. Cavendish imagines an alternate world and utopia that the Northampton-based graphic novelist Alan Moore referenced as a setting for part of his graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Both of these works inform Pip & Pop’s immersive installation at NN that also draws from Aboriginal sand painting and pan-Asia manga. This new world from beyond the other side of the planet is also a playful critique of mass-consumption.
A range of events will accompany the exhibition including Film Night’s, Crit Group for artists, Show & Tell, Write Club, creative workshops for families and more.
Further information about the upcoming exhibition and events are available to view on their website.
Wednesday–Saturday 11am–6pm (Thursday until 7pm)
