BIOSCOPE


BIOSCOPE




CATALOGUE TEXT
A gang of garden gnomes is terrorising the city. A ladybug as a basketball. A girl skipping rope on top of an earthworm. A bird being beaten up. The riot of detail in this two by four metre work of art recalls paintings by Pieter Bruegel the Elder or Hieronymus Bosch, but it’s more than a painting. What we see is an analogue animation, grotesque scenery animated by the spectators’ movements and their interaction with the picture – completely without electricity. The technology – lenticular printing – is known from flip images and 3D postcards.
