Opening this Friday, Australian paint-roller connoisseurs “Rawhide” (aka Ankles and Smile) have decided to display their craftsmanship through collage in their show • C R E W / C U T S •. The video echos a few themes of the show, which Ankles describes best: “the visual equivalent of sample-heavy scratch DJs such as Cut Chemist, Kid Koala and The Avalanches. It is a time-consuming process digging through crates of pre-1970s magazines and books, removing type and image from their original context and rearranging it to form some self-referential narrative.”
If you’re in the Adelaide, South Australia area on Friday, March 19th, stop by Magazine Gallery to check out the work!
