Conjuring fantastical creatures and imagery from the dark recesses of the human mind, Unheimlich is a new performance work by director and Last Great Hunt alum Kathryn Osborne and multidisciplinary artist Tarryn Gill.

Drawing inspiration from her acclaimed Guardians series of sculptural works, Tarryn is creating life-sized masks and characters that will be animated and brought to life by an exciting team of some of Perth’s most-established performing artists.

Produced by Performing Lines WA, this show will be developed throughout 2018 and early 2019.

I am excited about undertaking this collaboration with director Katt Osborne out of a desire to expand this series of works into a performative realm. It feels like the natural progression in my practice to now take these soft sculptural forms into multi-artform work that includes performative elements.
