New Gillie and Marc Sculptures + FAILE Prints
@ Line Dot Editions
1023 N Western Ave, Chicago, IL 60622
Opening Wednesday, August 24th, from 6PM - 10PM
On view through Wednesday, December 31st
Join us on the evening of the 24th for the Chicago debut of Australian artists Gillie & Marc. The husband-and-wife duo, known for their instantly recognizable Dogman and Rabbitgirl avatars, are part of the new generation of artists whose lives straddle the boundaries between visual practice and personal space. With their anthropomorphic qualities, Dogman and Rabbitgirl project the whimsy and levity of Gillie and Marc’s relationship and tie their personal story into a greater artistic context.
Line Dot is pleased to premier a selection of sculptural works from two of the artists’ beloved collections. The Lolly series features Rabbitgirl and Dogman cast in colored and clear polyresin available in two different sizes. The bronze Miniature Collection recreates imagery from their popular public art commissions on a more intimate scale. All of the sculptures are from limited editions and are signed and numbered by the artists.
Gillie & Marc have been collaborating together for over 20 years. In addition to numerous public sculptures and commissions, they have exhibited worldwide in over thirty solo shows. They were Archibald Prize Finalists in 2006, won the Chianciano Biennale in Tuscany in 2009, and were finalists in Bondi’s Sculptures by the Sea in 2012. Their work is held in collections both nationally and internationally.
Also on the 24th, we are thrilled to open our archives and offer a selection of iconic work from the lauded Brooklyn street art duo FAILE. The offerings run the gamut from large edition prints to unique hand-finished works. This will be a rare opportunity to view a selection of FAILE’s meticulously crafted screen prints and acquire classic imagery from the duo’s early oeuvre.
Following the party on the 24th, all remaining artwork from Gillie & Marc and FAILE will be available on our site Thursday at noon.
