If you’re a fan of psychedelic blood and guts (and you know we are), check out our friend and contributor Mimi Leung’s exhibition Australian Roadkill, opening on July 10th at Lamington Drive in Melbourne. (Mimi illustrated the Khmerican Food article in our American Food issue.) She used the “gory yet cute” kangaroos, wombats, and rabbits found on rural Australian roads as her inspiration. Here are all of the details:

Working with illustrator Mimi Leung and long time collaborator Chris Ruffe, we designed and built this window display for Adidas, via Vice.
In search of a dynamic spatial effect that would enhance Mimi’s dripping illustration style, the characters were cut in rubber and draped from the ceiling with monofilament line. Several layers were set out to underscore the 3D qualities of the display, beginning with the rubber and ending with the banner.
