Dark Mofo’s late night offerings have established a cult following over the past five years, and this winter the annual Hobartian ritual rose again, summoning people from the main land to Night Mass where this year the Levi’s® Laundry held court in a dark corner of The Odeon Theatre.
A fetishists love letter to denim; Levi’s collaborated with Melbourne creative duo – ‘The Huxley’s’ who brought their vision to life creating a denim dungeon with denim clad creatures drawing on influences from ‘Stranger Things’.
The Huxley’s are Will and Garrett Huxley whose shared background in design, photography and performance has informed their practice – a living, ever evolving collage of still images, moving image, costume and performance. ‘The Huxleys’ have exhibited artwork in installations, fashion shows, performances and photographic exhibitions and festivals across the world including Rome, London, Portugal, New York, Berlin and Australia.
The Huxley’s take being ridiculous very seriously and their collaboration with Levi’s® was no exception. Their living, ever-evolving practice of image making, costume and performance unfolded in new and strange ways across both weekends where boundaries were pushed and minds blown.
