Graham Carter "Me, Marionette" Ink_d Gallery, Brighton (4th May - 3rd June) 2012

Doing my (unpaid) bit for UK art, 
Me, Marionette is an exhibition of new work by the Brighton-based artist Graham Carter that will be opening at the Ink_d Gallery on Friday 4th May as part of the Brighton Festival Fringe. He is working in conjunction with Brighton-based animation studio Ticktockrobot. The artist is assuming the role of Geppetto, the creator of Pinocchio and creating a magical world of characters, from warriors to explorers, and astronauts to yetis. Ticktockrobot's brief: "To promote Graham's solo show using a viral campaign of animations and a simple quirly website with which to hold them. The concept was that of 3 Marionettes from distant lands all journeying to a secret location. We wanted to create a stagered launch of three animations leading up to the show, with the three being 'woven' together as a feature length reveal at the show." There's more here. It runs until 3rd June so I might just get there with the family. Brighton's a lovely place in the sun and now there is something to do in the rain.
