CEL: The Artist As Animator
CEL brings together the work of Australian and international artists working in what South African artist William Kentridge calls ‘stone-age animation’ using stop-motion techniques in which the hand of the artist is ever present. These simple, visually rich animations convey complex, poignant, and whimsical narratives that cut through technology and form a direct connection with the viewer. BRAG has commissioned five regional artists to create a stop-animation work that extends their traditional studio practices. Featured artists include Tom Buckland, Genevieve Carroll, Harrie Fasher, Locust Jones, William Kentridge, Richard Lewer, Aleshia Lonsdale, and Sun Xun. A BRAG exhibition.
