Metamorphosis is an exploration into the archetype's of the human psyche. As humans, we create the archetypes that exist amongst us as individuals, and as a part of a couple, a family, a tribe or a nation.
Here HAHA investigates these archetypes by means of stencil: fusing portraits of people together to find a link or connection between couples, or by fusing man with machine and beast.
The viewer is presented and faced with questions about the archetype within relationships, transhumanism & the beast man.
HAHA (Regan Tamanui) is one of Australia's most notorious and prolific stencil artists. He called the Blender Studios home for many years before extending his art practice with an extended, overseas trip.
Now he is back, and is having his first solo show since returning to Melbourne at Blender Studios' gallery Dark Horse Experiment.
