This August, MrPickles, our CATivist is having his first solo show at Little Monroe Gallery. The show is divided in two parts: first, a short film of 121 seconds, GAME OVER, where MrPickles presents some of his ongoing interests. Please watch the movie here:
This film was prepared in collaboration with TetraPAKMAN, who followed the directions and suggestions of MrPickles. An exploration of society and its power structures, in specific relation to the fossil fuel industry represented by the train.
The second part of the show is the physical piece at the Little Monroe Gallery, 1901 Monroe St. (KITTY corner from Trader Joe’s). In this case is the reinterpretation that MrPickles developed from the first piece TetraPAKMAN presented in Madison: WILD AMERICA 121 elements. The title of the show, GAME OVER, is MrPickles’ answer to the recurrent practice of TetraPAKMAN: the accumulation of materials.
