pixcell red deer : kohei nawa @ ngv

This two metre tall red deer arrived at NGV International in April. Kohei Nawa has completely covered it with crystal beads. These capture, distort and magnify details of the animal – as well as reflecting light. PixCell raises questions about perception, and takes taxidermy to a whole new level. Part of the artist’s Beads series, and a perfect, if slightly unnerving companion for the Waterwall.

I love good coffee, street art, tiki bars and kitsch. Adore roller derby and quiffs and vintage Hawaiian shirts. Enjoy a slice of my northside life!
