LONDON.- The Cinema Museum announced the London premiere of Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape (2011-2017), Andy Holden's acclaimed film proposing that the world is now best understood as a cartoon. More than five years in the making, and containing nearly 400 clips from the golden age of animation, Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape and related cartoon shorts are given a special screening within the evocative setting of The Cinema Museum, the country’s only museum dedicated to cinema culture.

Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape sees the limitless possibilities of today’s world through the prism of ten ‘motion laws’ delivered in a tone that is part-lecture, part-documentary and part-conspiracy theory, by the artist in the form of a cartoon avatar. New laws such as Everything falls faster than an anvil and Any body suspended in space will remain in space until made aware of its situation are combined with Greek myths, philosophy, politics and physics, and hundreds of clips from cartoon directors such as Tex Avery, Chuck Jones and early Walt Disney, in an exploration of the world as an irrational space where anything can happen, yet certain things reoccur.

The duration of the film is 57 minutes, and plays on a loop every hour throughout the day. Open Tuesday - Sunday: 12:00pm – 7:00pm, and until 9:00pm on Thursday and Friday. Closed Monday.

Laws of Motion in a Cartoon Landscape (57 mins) was first seen at Glasgow International in 2016, and has since shown at Venice Biennale (2017), Lancaster Arts (2017), Viborg Kunsthal (2017), Pinchuk Art Centre, Ukraine (2017), Front International in Cleveland, USA (2018) and Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto (2018).

Andy Holden’s work spans sculpture and painting, pop music, performance, and video. Recent solo exhibitions include Natural Selection (2017-2019), commissioned by Artangel for the former Newington Library in south London and touring to Leeds Art Gallery; Towner Art Gallery, Eastbourne; Bristol Museum and Art Gallery; Museum of Contemporary Art, Toronto; and the site of the former Anderson High School in Lerwick, Shetland. Other solo exhibitions include Towards a Unified Theory of M!MS (Zabludowicz Collection, London and Spike Island, Bristol, 2013-14); Chewy Cosmos Thingly Time at Kettles Yard Cambridge (2011), and Cookham Erratics at the Benaki Museum, Athens and Art Now: Andy Holden at Tate Britain in 2010. Recent group exhibitions include Good Grief Charlie Brown (Somerset House, London, 2018-19); and Animals and Us (Turner Contemporary, Margate, 2018). In 2014, Holden’s band The Grubby Mitts toured the UK. In 2010, Holden set up the first of the annual artist music festival at Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge.
