Family Act exhibits animations and the making of one

In the middle of the gallery space there is a table with five puppets. The puppets animated by a crew realize several small stories of family life. Even the smallest events illustrate the power relationships inside a family. The stories the puppets act are collected from magazines and Internet forums and will be partly improvised.

The animation will be shot inside the gallery while it is open for public. The people who visit the gallery will be appearing and disappearing in the background of the animation. The animation pieces that are ready will be shown in the gallery throughout the weekend.

Come and have coffee inside an animation!
