Ruth Gibson (Artist), Bruno Martelli (Artist)

Research output: Practice-Based and Non-textual ResearchExhibition

Abstract

The Barbican’s ‘Watch Me Move’ exhibition aims to demonstrate the centrality of animation to contemporary global culture. It is the most extensive exhibition ever mounted of the full range of animated imagery produced in the last 150 years – from Snow White and Mickey Mouse to the Hulk.

The exhibition brings together industry pioneers, independent film-makers and contemporary artists including Étienne-Jules Marey, Harry Smith, Jan Švankmajer,William Kentridge and Nathalie Djurberg alongside the creative output of commercial studios such as Walt Disney, Aardman, Studio Ghibli and Pixar.

The exhibition is curated by Greg Hilty, Curatorial Director at Lisson Gallery. A 224 page book accompanies the exhibition, edited by Greg Hilty and Alona Pardo, with texts by Suzanne Buchan, Greg Hilty and Paul Wells.

‘SwanQuake: House’ on a 5 year worldwide tour in the ‘Watch-Me- Move: The Animation show’. ‘SwanQuake: House’ is the only work in the exhibition which is an interactive installation.

‘SwanQuake: House’ Through re-purposing media tools and combining them with re-modeled household objects, ‘SwanQuake: House’ simulates and reconfigures representations of an East-end underworld. A site-responsive work which taps into a sensorial flux where the real and virtual co-exist. The work is accompanied by a publication - SwanQuake: the user manual.
