TV Moore with Love & Squalor, is currently appearing at ACCA from 15th August to 27th September.
Confronted by the title emblazoned on the bright pink banner, out the front of ACCA, I was curious.
The man with the enigmatic name, is an Australian artist, based in NYC, and is exhibiting his first solo show at ACCA. The title of his show derives from a JD Salinger work, of the same name. His work ranges from video, photography and painting to film, sculpture and installation.
His show features the fruits of two years’ worth of intense work including pieces ranging from a sound installation and video works to a series of jelly-bean coloured digital “finger paintings”, — complex, layered mashups of collage, painting, photography, scanning and other media. He references, the popular Disney film, Shrek, in the some of his work.
As he has said, “That’s what’s great about being an artist: we’re pigeons, we’re seagulls. We’re just scavengers of stuff.”One room at ACCA, has been paved with dark blue, small tiles to house his one of his films.
