Tonight: Animate Locate • Mi wed 14 02

• 22 h • 10 pm Animation curated by Kim Collmer

Animate Locate

It is all about location- locations which give us comfort or discomfort, allow us to imagine, to laugh, squirm, locations that transport us or bring us quickly, and sometimes harshly, back to reality. Again we present animated shorts from stop-motion to pure CG. Highlights and emerging artists from all parts of the world will give an overview of the actual state of this specific genre. Curated by Kim Collmer of "Forming Motion" fame.

• Virgilio Villoresi and Vivì Ponti IT Fridgedaire 5 min 41 s, cut-out, 2005

Frigidaire is a stop motion animation about the birth, transformation, death and resurrection of a young girl. A hand takes her through a mad trip inside the house "Frigidaire". We took images from old magazines from the 40's-60's and from our reasearch of old books. The video is made with the collage technic and the sound is made by cuttings of old film. This is our first video together.
