Across 7 projections, this animated installation depicts a poetic, dark, and somewhat humorous social observation, in which family ties and relationships are broken down and dissected to pieces.
HOME is an art video recorded inside a fragmented miniature space of a diorama. In the video, this space appears as a compact and idyllic whole with a breath of warmth and coziness of a sunshine-flooded home. However, in reality, this is a cluster of small, broken, dissected walls and facades alike those that the artist uses in her animated puppet films.
Through minute depiction of a tangible miniature world and it’s atmosphere, utilising visual metaphors and a range of editing approaches, this work features an open narrative structure. The animation triptych evokes the atmosphere of old Dutch paintings, where sisters are trapped in melancholy, facing the loss and emptiness over the missing one.
Splendid Isolation is an animation triptych done in traditional puppet animation technique. With uneven durations of about 90 seconds for each, the projections run in a loop without synchronisation. The loose story is structured to depict the same character in three different locations on each projection.
