Satellites is a collaborative work created by Mary MacDougall and M.P. Hopkins. A series of drawings, made by MacDougall using an iPad in 2013, have been exported as videos that show the sequence in which the drawings were made. The resulting inadvertent animations have been set to a soundtrack created by Hopkins in 2020.
Mary MacDougall is interested in the physicality of paint, subjects in transition and questions of perspective. She works with glass, ceramics and image archives. Forms in her work sometimes appear ancient and quiet, while at other times like super-heated rock, flowing and coagulating.
Mary MacDougall (b. 1983, Australia) lives and works on Gadigal land in Sydney. She regularly contributes to various journals, has performed in The Bowles (2008), was a Helen Lempriere Scholarship finalist (2009), released The Bowles EP on Graham Lambkin’s Kye record label in New York (2012), has exhibited widely in artist run spaces in Sydney, Melbourne and San Francisco; her most recent solo exhibitions include Roman Glass Episode, Knulp, Sydney and R.B. Waves, ReadingRoom, Melbourne.
M.P. Hopkins is an artist working on Gadigal land in Sydney, Australia, making audio, performance, installation, and textual works. Using verbal notation, amplified voice, everyday objects, and various recording and playback technology, his work explores the use of voice within different acoustic environments, which are then deconstructed and presented to the listener in delicate and degraded ways.
