THE GRAND GUIGNOL AUTOMATON…

THE LAUDANUM PROJECT presents
THE GRAND GUIGNOL AUTOMATON

The Laudanum Project would like to introduce you to Sandrine Moreaux. Sandrine is not like other girls. She is complicated. Very complicated. In the year of 1920 Sandrine arrived on the streets of Paris searching for the divine temple of her obsessions – the infamous Théâtre Du Grand Guignol. What she found therein was a terrifying reflection of her own yearnings and dreams that rendered her transformed, reborn but above all beautiful, so very beautiful.

The Grand Guignol Automaton is coming to the 2014 Melbourne Fringe Festival this September.

Time to introduce the whole family

Straight from the infamous Museum Of Mankind, it’s the traveller, the collector, the bon vivant. It’s Alphonse Cheese-Probert!

Without going into too much detail, there were accusations, games of hide and seek and several dead husbands who were all discovered with traces of succinylcholine in their systems. Please welcome back the innocent and the utterly not guilty, Lady Sophronia Lick-Penny

With a winning smile and a collection of dead things that would make Mummy proud, it’s our very own boy in the attic, Barnabas Oral!

Nun…

NUN is an image that I created for my first group exhibition, MIMIC, in 2010. The exhibition brief was to create an image that was inspired by another artist, a piece of music or poetry. It was a fairly broad brief, which is always helpful when you have 15 other photographers involved!

Even though I was fairly new to photography at the time, I had discovered the incredible work of photographer/digital artist, Oleg Dou. So, with the surrealist images of his nuns firmly in mind, this was the end result.
