    Jill Kennedy : Eyes on the Moon Interview posted Jun 7 2012 by Miriam Harris

    Boys_Panda_web

    Jill Kennedy’s Eyes on the Moon is a series of evocative, rich, and absurd animations that gained resonance alongside two other exhibitions recently scheduled at Auckland’s Gus Fisher Gallery.

    Ballast: Bringing the Stones Home presented a collection of John Edgar sculptures forged from stone collected by the artist in historic Scottish quarries. In Paper-jams: artists between the covers various artists explored the book’s identity as a sculptural object.

    Programmed in tandem by curator Andrew Clifford, the three shows offered a rich survey of the similarities and differences across a range of media. In Paper-jams Patrick Pound’s sensitive collages deconstructed seemingly inviolable tomes to reveal beautiful innards. Tessa Laird’s cheerfully quirky ceramic books enticed but remained resolutely sealed. Elsewhere, the modernist strategies of El Lissitsky and Johanna Drucker made traditional boundaries between text and image permeable. Meanwhile, in the foyer space John Edgar’s Ballast: Bringing the Stones Home displayed the glorious physicality of worked Scottish stone, coupled with texts by Dinah Hawkins.
    Like several of the Paper-jams artists, Kennedy combs through old books and journals for her source images. Often culled from 1960s and 70s photography and illustration, many bear the sun-bleached aura of a California snapshot. In Eyes on the Moon she endowed these images with life-like qualities, or juxtaposed them to startling and absurd effect – a macraméd plant holder slowly turns in space; panda heads propel from the earth like launched rockets; and, in time to John Payne’s synthesised beats, astronauts cavort with beach balls on the surface of the moon.

    JILL KENNEDY. NEW EDUCATIONAL SERIES

    Sorlandets Kuntsmuseum

    19. Juni – 29. August 2010
    Animation from New Zealand
    Jill Kennedy, born 1981 in Glasgow, moved with her family to New Zealand in 1982. She graduated with a Bachelor of Design in 2002, and received a Graduate Diploma of Design in 2006. She lives and works as an artists and animator in Auckland. She has been showing widely at galleries in New Zealand and internationally, and her films have been presented at short film festivals as Edinburgh International Film Festival and The Worldwide Short Film Festival in Toronto.
    As part of a collaboration between Sørlandets kunstmuseum and Agder naturmuseum og botanisk hage, Jill Kennedy’s work is premiered for a Norwegian and Nordic audience. By this and similar projects the two museums are jointly investigating the common and dividing ground between an art museum and a museum of natural history in regards of collections and exhibition practices, and how the understanding of art and science respectively will change when placed within new contexts.
    Better Military Modelling (animation, 2008) which is shown in the video space at Sørlandets kunstmuseum, is part of Jill Kennedy’s ‘New Educational Series’, an ongoing project consisting of animations constructed mainly of images taken from illustrations. There is a sense of psychedelic experimentation in her approach, while she continuously plays with layers of humour and irony. Music and sound is provided by time-based media artist John Payne.
    Two other works are simultaneously shown at Agder naturmuseum og botaniske hage, Canaries in Colour(2007) and At Home With the Ants (2009), both as well part of ‘New Educational Series’ and with sound by John Payne. At this museum of natural history, the works are integrated with the traditional display of the collections in glass cases and dioramas, features fully in tune with the playful way the animations toy around with the concepts of zoological collections and a nature that is continuously under surveillance. www.skmu.no

    “I don’t know what’s with this film, but it tackled my inner critic to the ground and I really enjoyed it. The major ingredients are frosted glass panes, paper cut out EVERYTHING, a magical reproduction computer wheel (no, not a sex-bot or a cloning machine), and a generous sprinkle of Salvador Dali. From what I could tell, it was a maddening serial free-association for “educational” use, starting with an ant hill. It was so interesting just to figure out how Kennedy got from ants to mouse to levitating things (I have my hypothesis throughout the film). The dog atom is such a funny idea that I wondered why I never thought that dogs are quantized (which is totally true). Highly recommend it if you can find it. Just don’t expect to come away unscathed.” www.panicmanual.com
