Adelaide-based artist Emma Hack is exhibiting her newest works, ‘Chinoiserie’, at Burnside Village’s Fashion Mall in a pop-up gallery.

Hack’s work is focused on body paint and camouflage, assisting the human body to blend into their surroundings with the artist’s help.

Chinoiserie is derived from the French word ‘Chinois’, meaning ‘China’, however Hack’s use of this word is the ‘European interpretation and imitation of Chinese and East Asian artistic traditions, especially in the decorative arts’, according to her website.

By using the models as porcelain busts who interact with the oriental backgrounds, Hack draws upon the yin and yang idea, that opposite or contrary forces may be complementary, and interconnected.

Hack is responsible for the art in Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know, continuing on the theme of the models blending in to their surroundings.

This isn’t one to miss.

The pop-up gallery is open until the 9th of October, with Hack presenting her work 11am-3pm Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays until the end of the exhibition.
