gallery hanahou will soon be overtaken by the tiny gnomes, snowmen, and the fuzzy bunnies that inhabit Mochimochi Land! Fiber artist Anna Hrachovec will create a miniature epic battle scene rife with cuteness and chaos as sworn enemies, Gnomes and Snowmen, fight it out for control over carrot supplies and herds of cuddly bunnies, with as much pathos and violence as knitted toys can summon.
Inspired by the 11th century Bayeux Tapestry depicting the Norman conquest of England, the installation is a study of iconic characters and their physical limits within the technical constraints of knitting. The three dimensional, linear scene plays out along the walls of gallery hanahou in a series of 40+ panels.
Melting snowmen, flattened gnomes, candy cane fights, and a super-secret third invader are just some of the fun that awaits…
We hope you can experience the chaos that will ensue at the opening on November 3rd!
