Haddon, O’Connor and Walch are members of the Painters Guild of Hobart. Hackable Animals is the Guild’s first project. Over the course of several months, the members will rotate a series of paintings through each other’s studios. The project will challenge each member with new ways of working, new and unpredictable content, and outcomes that are unfettered by the constraints of decades of practice and the consequent notions of subjective style. In this way, the ruptures produced by surprise encounters will thwart the predictability of the personal profiles, preferences and choices. There is risk in this approach, but it is precisely this precarious experimental partnership that the project seeks to exploit.
