Before they get assigned roles in the epic battle, let’s enjoy this pile of 100 or so gnomes, shall we?
In association with this year’s Pictoplasma NYC festival, gallery hanahou is excited to bring you the second installment of Anna Hrachovec’s miniature knit world, Mochimochi Land. The battle begins November 3rd, as a part of the Pictoplasma Character Walk!
Show dates: November 3rd – 18th
Opening reception: Thursday, November 3rd, 6-8pm
(Please note: You do not need a Pictoplasma pass & there is no admission fee to view this exhibit)
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!
