24 July 2014

Life Gallery is host to Ellen Degeneres Beezin Topshop {preliminary materials}, by artists Holly Childs and Max Trevor Thomas Edmond, online now and running  July 23 to August 20.

The press release offers little more than the promise of an interesting show, mentioning that currently “Hella Trol Buzy [Max] and Holly Childs are sleeping somewhere in Australia (?) in a place without internet (?)” and that the it features part of a book written collaboratively between the two and “split into 9 google docs of different lengths which might change at some point (?) looping at different speeds”.

The show comes on the heels of Edmond’s residency at Life Gallery, joint book with Childs holy hela (2014),  and their mutual participation in the Burn Rate Office writing performance at Emerging Writers’ Festival in Australia.

For more writing, read an excerpt of Meet Me at the Rave at the End of the World published in Auckland art publication Magasine (pages 25-8) or check out one of Edmond’s textual works here.
