It’s Always Six O’Clock and Time for Morbid Whimsy

Mickey Mouse serving up a skeleton

It’s Always Six O’Clock is the latest exhibition from Eva and Franco Mattes. It has our favorite art movement, morbid whimsy, in the house. And it also has a delightful array of characters and toys going batshit and sabotaging the exhibition. They’re catapulting paintballs at canvases. A league of Supermen is spilling paint down a white wall. And an army of toys, led by Super Mario, appears to be performing brain surgery on a plush Pooh bear. Not to mention their favorite piece, which happens to be mine as well. Check out the video below or the full gallery of stuff is here.

  • Feh. I hate ‘gallery speak’. Verbal snobbery, that’s all it is! They just don’t want to say “We did this b/c we have twisted imaginations, a sense of humor, and a lot of free time.”

  • PC: I agree with you–I figured it was tolerable to get a chance to actually see the work in a video as opposed to just looking at pics. That being said: perhaps it’s easier to hide behind Art when facing down Disney’s legal department rather than doing what you or I would do, which is put it exactly as you did. :) Dunno. Either way, I still dig Mickey with the platter.
