Install shot from Funny, Blurry & Everything Hazy, PINK Manchester, 2021 by Pippa Eason
A solo exhibition at PINK Manchester in 2021 - curated and produced by Mark Devereux Projects.
Taken from MDP's Website:
'Our memories are often intangible, abstracted combinations of objects, relationships and moments in time. We celebrate, reminisce and mourn for what they were or what they could have been. Funny, blurry and everything hazy is a solo exhibition of new works by artist Pippa Eason at PINK, Manchester, in which she combines her own childhood memories with stories collected from people she has spoken to over the last 2-years of her research project.
Eason has embraced the act of childhood play to create a series of whimsical works, building a sensory explosion of vivid colour, humour and familiarity. Ranging from large-scale hanging drawings, tiny sculptures moving through the space and life-size inanimate objects spewing sugary odors from their pores, the artist invites us to enter her sensory world of imagination and recollect our own memories of joyful times.'
