Why did the conceptual artist design a limited-edition yoga mat? Because it was a great idea!
To coincide with the opening of Open Studio, Sebastian Moody, Onespace Gallery and QAGOMA Store have collaborated to produce Citrus Mat (smooth ~ mammal), 2022, by Sebastian Moody.
Have the chance to backward bend to a constellation of characters. Channel the ‘smooth mammal’ within. Meditate alongside metaphorical ‘citrus steam’. Practice your Sun Salutations like your arms are a set of closed brackets (_(^_^)_)
Available now from QAGOMA Store and Onespace Gallery. As part of a limited-edition of 100, each mat comes signed and numbered.
For some time, Sebastian Moody’s words have lingered and materialised on a generous assortment of facades: in swimming pools, personal advertisements, kitchen splashbacks; on hang gliders and banners at music festivals, inner city billboards; and as multi-storey public projections. Citrus Mat (smooth ~ mammal), 2022, effortlessly slips into Moody’s practice of physically manifesting elusive ideas. As you centre and relax your body and mind, symbols and text drift under your feet for a curiously conceptual yoga experience.
Open Studio, Sebastian Moody is on show at the Queensland Art Gallery until 25 September 2022.
Opinion Fatigue by Sebastian Moody is exhibiting at Onespace Gallery until 27 August 2022.
