A fruity exhibition of miniature dioramas & potty-mouthed puns by installation artist, Tinky
Through pun-tastic miniature dioramas, Melbourne street artist Tinky brings her humorous work from the laneways of Melbourne into contemporary boutique Lord Coconut in a titillating exhibition: Unzipped.
Unzipped celebrates Melbourne's Midsumma Festival and diversity in all its glory (holes) through a unique world of miniature proportions.
The exhibition Unzipped comprises tiny occupants that exist simply to amuse. Often finding themselves in questionable scenarios, each miniature character persists with a juicy adventure with unwitting wittiness - they know nothing other than fruity folly. Each diorama is complemented by a bawdy narrative that provides comical context.
Artist-in-residence at Melbourne's Blender Studios and installation street artist, Tinky, works with miniatures and found objects, typically making use of gritty street landscapes in urban environments, where laneway fixtures, or missing bricks, become home to humorous dioramas. Her use of pun-ridden word-play completes each diorama.
In her third solo exhibition, Tinky brings her work from the outside, in. Making use of vintage finds, oversized objects, and glass cloches, a comical new Midsumma exhibition - Unzipped - is born.
