The artists' work probes psychological states and the complexity of daily life by using anthropomorphic objects as metaphors. Visitors are invited to step inside an experiential gallery displaying stop-motion films, as well as the sculptures that are animated in each. Set in a fantastical forest, A Pancake Moon considers the transformational physical and emotional journey of motherhood, acted out by a cast of characters.
