Brisbane calling…

I have some vague and misty recollection that a stag appears in both Celtic and Hungarian mythology, luring the person it visits into strange new realms and experiences.

Well, I’m not sure Brisbane really counts as a strange new realm, but this stag is calling out “Come to Brisbane! To Brisbane! Come to Brisbane, Niccola!”.

Seriously, isn’t it EXQUISITE? It was created by Kohei Nawa (his website is right here). It’s being exhibited as part of the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art in Brisbane.

Kohei Nawa locates stuffed animals and other objects through online auction houses and then covers them in transparent glass beads. Nawa calls his creations PixCells – “A cell of an image”. Staggeringly beautiful creations… No pun intended!

You can check out the ABC’s Artscape documentary on the Triennial here.
