About

Pip and Pop
14 February - 27 April 2014
NN, Number Nine Guildhall Rd, Northampton, NN1 1DP

Launch night: 13 February 2014, 6pm. All welcome!

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௿½s 1666 forerunner of science fiction The Blazing World forms the starting point for Tanya௿½s 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௿½s 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.

Wednesday 11am௿½6pm
Thursday 11am௿½7pm
Friday 11am௿½6pm
Saturday 11am௿½6pm
