Judy Darragh: Sissy Squat

This exhibition is now closed

Judy Darragh livens up the Gallery's Gloucester Street entry doors.

We're all waiting for the day when Christchurch Art Gallery opens its doors again. In the meantime, well-known New Zealand artist Judy Darragh is bringing her brand of humour and visual energy to the doors. Sissy Squat began its life as a promotional poster for a movie featuring a handsome Hollywood couple. But Darragh has set to work editing and creatively vandalising the image, covering its surface with spray-paint, strange data and hand-made visual glitches. Brightened up and painted over, the happy couple now look like they belong in a new genre – not romantic comedy, but science fiction.
