OK YEAH COOL GREAT
In New Order, OK YEAH COOL GREAT author their own conceptual and aesthetic space centered between new age rhetoric, aesthetic ideals and contemporary design – displaying for their audience an edition of banners, claiming to have been made in an invitational format on behalf of ‘the universe’. Each banner hangs as a tribute to the mundane with accompanying statements of personal reinforcement. With sober wit, OK YEAH COOL GREAT take on the role of artist as oracle – establishing a tableau of self-affirming incantations for their new followers.
Kate Beckingham and Anna McMahon met in 2010 during their honours year at Sydney College of the Arts. Drawn together by their love of clean lines and simple aesthetics, Beckingham and McMahon formed OK YEAH COOL GREAT.
