Abstract (English)

"Negus’ works range from ephemeral objects, including glittery party banners, neon signs and artificially flowered memorial wreaths, to video works steeped in sweet sadness. At the centre of you can’t spell slaughter without laughter is a constellation of short but intense, single channel videos and digital-animations investigating nostalgia and loss through humour and difficult irony. Here children tell terrible stories, pop songs become awkward painful poetry, night stars are watching us, and small traumas play out within a larger view of the cosmos." -- Publisher's website.
