Transmogrifications

Eline McGeorge shows her computer-animated drawings in Transmogrifications, an exhibition that explores the space of fantasy as an ongoing process of transmutive imaginings. The exhibition runs from 12 March to 25 April at Danielle Arnaud contemporary art, London.

01/04/2004 :: The process of transmutive imaginings enables a liberation from static, finite ideals and generates possibilities for new connections to emerge. This allows the viewer to make links with their own imaginary repertoires.

Forms and figures merge and transmute in delightful, playful constellations that moves the viewer beyond their specific self-identities.

This process, where one thing becomes another in an ongoing mutation of identity, is simultaneously disturbing, enlivening, joyous and dark.

Born in Norway, Eline McGeorge graduated from Goldsmiths in 2000. Exhibitions include B Hotel at PS1 Contemporary Art Center, New York (2001/2); Break in Theatre 2 (touring major spaces in Japan) and Bloomberg New Contemporaries, 2001.

From an unpublished article by Lisa Prior, May 2001:

"It's hard to define McGeorge's work because they are not drawing, per se. They could be videos, animations or objects. Starting from images she finds from the Internet, the media and so forth, she creates myriad tiny tragedies and triumphs. Through the animation of these images she presents a sort of fictitious reality. The impossible suddenly becomes possible, but it is not the impossibility of the spectacular, but rather the impossibility of the mundane. Each starting point, a still image, is pared down to an elegant simplicity and then the story begins: a tiger walking a tightrope, a rocket lost in a whirl as it attempts to leave earth, a small doll that vomits. The animated works are presented on small flat screen monitors, bringing them back to their starting point as drawings, at least conceptually."
