What happens when a group of artists in Bandung gets a whopping power bill?
They turn it into a stop animation and inspiration for an art installation of course!
The fabulously playful and highly dedicated work on show at Tramorama’s Open House at the NGV invites the young animator or the jumping tutu wearer or the adventurous gardener to explore and learn something about Bandung on the way.
The artists; Febie Babyrose, Herbert Hans and Ruddy Hatumena all met while studying in Bandung and have gone on to lend 3 months of time and 12 kilograms of animated buttons to create a film to ‘Zsa Zsa Zsu‘ by Indonesian pop group Rock N Roll Mafia among many other works. Quirky creations on display include an army of crockery on a sneaky day out to the sound of a lively soundtrack by Bagus Pandega and an endlessly mobile flower wall at play entitled ’Nothing is as it Seems’.
I see the next Aardman studio emerging…
More images of the artists and how they set up their animations can be seen at the NGV.
