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.
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.
Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
