Visages Villages, Agnès Varda and Jr documentary is competing for an Oscar

Visages Villages, Agnès Varda and Jr documentary is competing for an Oscar

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

Could a documentary like that of the strange couple formed by Agnès Varda and Jr, not be nominated for the Oscars?

Obviously not, and in fact Visages Villages will know its fate next March 4.
The two, the 89-year-old Belgian director, considered to be a great exponent of the Nouvelle Vague and the young artist known for his particular use of photography, shot for two years in the French hinterland, investigating and being inspired by the stories of strangers met on their way.

Visages Villages is their story, but also the story of all these strangers.
It’s a trip on a van that looks like a camera of a boy accustomed to traveling to the farthest places and a woman who at the Governors Awards of 11 November, received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
An atypical story that has already been awarded at Cannes with L’Oeil D’Or for the best documentary and to which we wish the best.

Here is the trailer that tells you how this beautiful madness was born.

With paper and good manual skills you can do everything.
This is demonstrated every day, all in different ways, by many artists from all over the world.

The paper artist and illustrator Reina Takahashi aka Reinasaur is the one that we want to tell you today, after  Raya Sader Bujana, Eiko Ojala and many others.
100 Paper Breakfasts is her challenge, a daily project in which she commits to making 100 breakfasts from the world.
From the classic pancakes and croissants to the more exotic ones, through honey and eggs, coffee and bread.

A simple project that delights and satisfies our eyes.

Short video for Breakfast – Bingo, when the game is everything

Short video for Breakfast – Bingo, when the game is everything

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

We play to kill some time, we play to keep us company and sometime we play to win.
Bingo, today’s short video tells the story of a cute old lady who seems to be the only one interested in the afternoon game at the retirement home.
The only one who wants to win.

Her fortune, however, will turn into a series of unfortunate events that will lead her to a night of madness in search of the last lost number.

A sad story but so funny.

Short video for Breakfast – Glucose, Jeron Braxton’s KO

Short video for Breakfast – Glucose, Jeron Braxton’s KO

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

With a visual aesthetic strongly inspired by the culture of internet and video games, Jeron Braxton, filmmaker and musician, has used low-poly and glitch-art effects to tell about surreal journey that happens through the dream of a video games character been out after a defeat in the ring.

As the title also suggests, Glucose, the imaginary is presented in a colorful and delicate way, but as the film progresses, the line of demarcation between dream and nightmare begins to fade.

Geronimo’s huge balloons installation at Lincoln Center

Geronimo’s huge balloons installation at Lincoln Center

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

Los Angeles-based artist Jihan Zencirli aka Geronimo has created an immense installation in collaboration with the New York City Ballet, within the Lincoln Center in Manhattan, its historic home.

The installation, the artist’s largest to date, is made up of thousands of compostable and biodegradable balloons that will remain within the location from January 26th to February 24th, a period during which the most famous dance company in the world will perform in two special performances.

“Balloons are only for a moment. They disappear and vanish. I am rooted in my work is this reminder that you will only have this experience at this particular time. You’re here, you’re seeing it, you’re alive.”

The visual and performance artist of Turkish origin continues her journey in creating physical and emotional spaces able to break the monotony and normality of days, uniting more people in the same place and giving them unexpected moments of joy.

Precisely for this reason, her installations are often judged ephemeral, despite the fact that the sense is one of the simplest and most enjoyable, democratic both in form and in the places where she decides to create them.
