Staring Contest Through Fuchsia Membrane
Puddle Popper (Sarah Davidson, Juli Majer, Sonja Ratkay and Mel Thibodeau)
Little Sister Gallery, Toronto
October 6 - 28, 2018

PUDDLE POPPER slips through realities towards our desires, passing between description, invention and idealisation to wiggle around truths. Merging forms, Puddle Popper creates a set-like world featuring invented beings, humanoids, tentacles and unreadable text. Appendages transform. Colour is revised. Portals open up, limbs are put part way through, and then all the way through, and new bodies are observed and created.

Puddle Popper is an artist collective formed in 2015 in Vancouver by artists Sarah Davidson, Juli Majer, Sonja Ratkay and Mel Thibodeau. Through interactive sculpture installations, they propose alternate spaces in which bodies both human and non-human interact: themes of embodiment, comfort, queerness, and ecology are the basis for playful, collaborative world-building.
