ANNA HOYLE > YOUR CHOC-MINT PELVIK FLOOR IS SO BORING
Come and share in Anna Hoyle’s witty and subversive take on the health and well-being industry in the form of fake self-help books and vibrant poster-style works on paper. Anna is often inspired by overheard conversations, literature, phrases from the media and the poppy visual language of advertising. She has shared the following anecdotes about some of her works.
goji budji uber terra nudjie, 2021
Goji is after the berry, Terra is Latin for earth or land, Budji is Murri for fart, Über is German for supreme and Nudgie is an Armenian term of endearment. The visual qualities and sounds of the words are as important to the work as their meanings. The title of this work originally sprang from an in-joke among my friends relating to the name of a local organic fruit shop, which had changed its name. Often unable to recall the new name, and in order to play with the shop’s intention to sound hip and of the earth, with part cynicism and part humour we would refer to it as anything like oodjie niddrie nooshtie bodgie.
she cooked tuna pasta like a depressed housemate, 2021
This work is inspired by the many share houses that I have lived in throughout my life, and some of the inexorable meals that are made in these places. I had many wonderful houses and great meals with fantastic people, but I am attracted to the fallible side of such living, and now laugh at my own inability to realise how depressed I had been at various times, this cheap lazy meal reflecting some kind of loneliness, for me.
Visit the exhibition until 27 February 2022

Join curator Juliette Hanson for a lively conversation with Melbourne-based artist Anna Hoyle about her recent work in Your choc-mint pelvik floor is so boring. In this exhibition Hoyle presents a collection of ‘fictional’ book paintings and works on paper that have been inspired by social trends such as the self-help book and the wellness industry. Hoyle’s work also addresses issues related to consumerism and the environment with an ironic and sometimes absurd approach that combines comedy and tragedy in equal measure.
