Two Hearts and Heidi Nagtegaal : Love Child

Sat. July 30th 2011 - Fri. August 5th 2011
LOVE CHILD sexed out of a dear friendship where artistic practice, and personal styles so fully inter-lap to the point where own little worlds in our personal homes, embody neighbouring theme parks of whimsy, intellect, curiosity and delight, and intend to lovingly combine our creativity and aesthetics in a singular space.

Two Hearts and Nagtegaal will create a site specific, time based project, called LOVE CHILD for the MOCL, embodying the space into a full scale installation, using collages, extreme craft, fluorescent clotheslines, multi coloured homemade rugs, gods eyes, tents, and perpetual potlucks, events, discussions (etc), which would be open to the community. Nagtegaal and Two Hearts would reside in the gallery, under the shelter of an orange pup tent, toning the exhibition with love, friendship, community, and trust, circumvented by explosions of magnum lava creative explorations, known only to us and the community around the MOCL.

Read on for a schedule of workshops and fun:
