Projektinfo

During the residency I will continue the practical work on my PhD project, The Family Portrait. This will be a 7 screens animation installation for a gallery space.
I will make and animate two puppets (brothers) who are part of a bigger family. The brothers will be captured in a moment of intimacy, for about 3 minutes. This short animation piece will be the first in a row of fragmented narratives, that I intend to produce in the coming year. This first fragment will be also presented as a stand-alone piece titled "Anatomy of a Hug".

Dokumentation

During my stay at Q21/ MQ I was working on a short puppet animation piece “Anatomy of a Hug”. In my studio in Vienna, I built two puppets and animated a short sequence that I later exhibited in Gallery Kranjcar in Zagreb. “Anatomy of a Hug” is part of my PhD research that explores new narrative approaches in animation installation, and evolves around the topic of fragmented narratives and family relationships. This particular family story is set in 1900’s in Vojvodina, while it still bloomed under Austro-Hungarian empire.
And while my days were filled with minute work on miniature settings and animation, I also remember how much I enjoyed to just walk around Vienna in windy, early spring, wondering the streets and finding vintage shops and occasional flea markets. I spent hours in the freezing cold going through numerous boxes in search for antique trinkets which I would collect, refurbish and use in my film.
I was very lucky to stay at the residency in March, when Tricky Women Animation Festivals takes place in Vienna. It was an amazing experience to be part of the festival, and to meet so many inspiring people and potential collaborators. Kasia, another animator, was staying at the residency at the same time, and we had a lot of fun and fruitful moments exchanging experiences about the meticulous work in puppet animation.
Overall, my stay was charged with inspiration, encouragement and support for which I am endlessly thankful.
