Willy returns with his sick mother to the naturist community where he spent his childhood. When she dies, he flees into the forest haunted by memories. By losing himself, he will find absolute love. Willy’s story is everyone’s story. The farewell to his mother, the passage to maturity, the regrets, the things he’s never said and never done – everything reappears in an unsustainable whirl, in which the only solution is to fly into the emptiness of the Universe. Delicate and tactile like the wool that makes up the characters, the environment and the universe, Oh, Willy… is a further proof of the extraordinary ability that animation has to transform inanimate things into feelings.

Oh Willy…

Oh Willy…

Good News from the Skies

Good News from the Skies

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day. 

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
