CAT RABBIT AND ANDREA INNOCENT
4 December - 25 January 2020
Lamington Drive is pleased to present Mascots - a collaborative exhibition by Andrea Innocent and Cat Rabbit.
Cat Rabbit, known for her plush characters who inspire good feelings, and Andrea Innocent, known for her character design and emotive illustrations - have come together to create a series of 'Everyday Anxieties Mascots'.
Each mascot supports a particular feeling, mood or anxiety produced by modern living and the human condition. The characters act as a sort of talisman to the anxious and the introverted - to those who find the world overwhelming and confusing at times. Let's face it, that's most of us.
With its first iteration launching at Craft Victoria in 2018, this new extended exhibition presents an imaginary expo of mascots in the form of installation, illustration, sculpture, and found objects. Old friends like the telephant and shy lion will be there to ease your technophobia and agoraphobia, and some new friends will join in to walk with us through the dark tunnels of cognitive dissonance and solastalgia. There is no judgement here, just lots of cuddles, hand holding and waving. They're all on your side.
Opening Wednesday December 4, 6-9pm. Sponsored by Gage Roads Brewing Co
Exhibition runs until January 25, 2020
