Alli Good presents a macabre tale of cruelty in “Savage Flowers,” with pieces of various sizes and formats based on the artist’s first adventure with stop-motion animation. The narrative involves six girls and a horrific deed. The young women, all eerily dressed identically in floor-length blue dresses, blissfully eat flowers from a tree as they roam a beautiful mountainside, where they then encounter a dead rabbit. One of the girls becomes physically ill over the sight, and the true meaning of “savage flowers” shines through in what happens next. Among the many components of the show are small paintings of each of the characters’ faces, original framed drawings used in the animation, books and cassette tapes and a larger-than-life panel depicting the culmination of the tragedy. The animation was projected at the show’s opening, but is now available on YouTube at http://avl.mx/m9. Harvest Records is located at 415 Haywood Road, open Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-9 p.m., Sunday noon-5 p.m.
