Pip and Pop.
Fun name, fun story.
Pip and Pop are installation artists (that go by the real names of Nicole Andrijevic and Tanya Schultz) that use sugar to mould whimsical creations full of sweet fairytale wonder. They built this incredible set for Romance Was Born during SS13MBFWA in Sydney.
"Created in a manner similar to Buddhist Sand Mandalas (whose profound impermanence of their time consuming compositions are meant to be a meditation on the transitory nature of life), Pip and Pop’s works jump to 3D territory, oozing past boundaries in a day glo riot of neon and sparkle."
(I actual was not there so I am being savvy and using social media to help me illustrate the show. Instagram names are up the top- feel free to follow ;) )
Blurring the line between installation art, sculpture and set design, Pip and Pop injected a much needed breath of fresh air to Fashion Week in Sydney. Mushrooms, mounds of color and multi dimensional mountains of shimmer brought the stage to life while bringing the audience back to the fantastic innocence and wonder of their childhood. It is a reminder of what creativity should evoke- such delight that gets so lost in the face value of fashion week.
