Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape develops a theory of animation that proposes that the world has taken on characteristics best recognised in the gravity defying absurdity of cartoons. Developed over 5 years from hundreds of cartoon clips, the artist Andy Holden appears within the landscape to narrate his findings. Laws such as “Everything falls faster than an anvil” comingle with Greek myths, philosophy, politics, physics, as well as the history of animation, to explore the cartoon world as an irrational space where anything can happen, yet certain things reoccur.
We will be showing a single screen projection with additional new animation, developed over the past month, in response to what would have, only a few months ago, been deemed ‘unbelievably’ dramatic changes to the political landscape.
We will also be showing Holden’s short 3 minute film titled: Chewy Cosmos previously screened on Channel 4, that touches on similar concerns.
