Glovebox Film Festival

Sunday, February 27, 2011


Glovebox is loving this new crew of artists: 
!ND!V!DUALS are a collective of pretty talented artist using everything they can get ahold of to create three dimensional works that become characters out of some morphed Where the Wild Things Are book.  Why !ND!V!DUALS?  Because when I was little I would make toys out of popsicle sticks and they are taking that to a whole new level. Life size toys + life size art = hilarious fun.  Scrap metal and wood meets screen prints, all assembled in a individual way. 

More from one of !ND!V!DUALS artists, Luke O'Sullivan: 
"...(We are) finally showing an installation (Lovesick Cafe) at a really awesome gallery in our hometown! We have exhibited in Chelsea NYC, Portland ME, and Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival for the past 5 years, but this is our first show in Boston... !ND!V!DUALS newest work relies more on screen printed patterns (ie. fur, eyeballs, meat-cubes) while still retaining a similar aesthetic to our previous work. I would say its become a happy medium between the more rugged scrap wood scuptures we have made in the past and the refined screen printed sculpture work I (personally) make." 

Their installation “Lovesick Café” will be on display beginning Saturday March 5th through April 3rd. Using salvaged materials and screen printed wood, !ND!V!DUALS create site-specific installations typically inhabited or characterized by surreal and bizarre creatures. Their sculptures exhibit innovative gestures and witty formal invention combined with detailed craftsmanship that showcases humor, playfulness, and savagery.  “Lovesick Café” is the newest addition to the Allston/Boston restaurant scene and it’s guaranteed to serve the most exotic and creative dishes in the city. Opening reception will be held March 5th from 8pm-11pm at 156 Harvard Ave Allston MA and it will run through April 3rd. Full menu available March 1st at Bring your mustaches.

INDIVIDUALS have exhibited in New York City, Portland Maine, and Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Tennessee.
