July 2 to 16 (opening Fri July 1, 5.30-7.30pm) Martine Corompt: Cartoon and the cult of reduction. Through the use of two-dimensional projected animation and digital print work, this research project explores how the framework of the cartoon may be used to describe an evolving tendency of reduction in contemporary art and culture, and the relationship this tendency has with the history of Modernism filtering through the digital revolution of the 1990’s and early 2000’s to the present moment. The thesis traces and elucidates on what I have recognised and termed as the ‘Cult of Reduction’ as both a studio methodology and a cultural paradox. This exhibition comprises part of the VCA School of Art 2016 PhD Program.

Watson has been invited to create new work for the North Gallery, where she will respond to the Museum’s situation in the Yarra Valley.
