Sutton Gallery is pleased to present Arlo Mountford’s Galaxy Express, an exhibition featuring a new film work which re-animates Yoshinori Kanada's closing sequence to the 1979 Japanese Anime 'Galaxy Express 999' accompanied by a number of sculptural works.

Infused with humour and irony, Mountford's digitally animated films and kinetic sculptures, reinvigorate and legitimise the history of art while questioning the contemporary presentation of 'art history.' His research based practice is enticing, as recognisable forms float in and out of the frames with impeccable comedic timing, leaving his audience to enjoy the numerous witty juxtapositions, reinterpretations, and at times hilariously gory and slanderous alterations.

Exhibition opens: 4-6pm Saturday 11 October 2014
Exhibition closes: 8 November 2014
Location: Sutton Gallery, 254 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy
