Animation is perfect for showing the phenomena of metamorphosis, but is not simply destined to the mythical or the magical. It is the realm of traces, of the ephemeral and reveals the transformations linked to passing time, lending itself to mental projections, of memory as well as fantasy, dream and nightmare, to individual or collective fleeting visions. From the very first animated cartoons to digital images, the transient and changing nature of the images echoes the instability of the world, with the hopes and anxiety it generates.

Marie-Thérèse Champesme

With, amongst others: Kelly Richardson, Tabaimo, Jan Kopp, Clint Enns, Robert Breer, William Kentridge, Laurent Pernot and myself.
