From music clip to exhibition installation, Leaving LA opens as part of Perth Festival

Leaving LA brings together the visions of two Western Australian creative luminaries: singer-songwriter, comedian, actor and director Tim Minchin, and his childhood friend, artist, graphic designer, director and animator Tee Ken Ng. The project is a three-dimensional realisation of the animated music video Ng created for Minchin's song Leaving LA.

Presented as a live animation installation, the exhibition combines hand-made zoetropes, projection, camera-phones and video, revealing the unique and exquisite charm, art and craft of Tee Ken Ng's animation practice.
