Melancholia Mirror by Eléonore de Valera

L'animation d'Eléonore de Valera a pour sujet le « Melancholia Mirror » de François Bauchet, un objet qui doit son nom à la gravure éponyme d'Albrecht Dürer. Dans les nombreuses facettes sérigraphiées du miroir, des motifs abstraits apparaissent, ainsi que la suggestion d'une silhouette figurative dans la partie inférieure du miroir : la forme à peine esquissée du visage de Dürer. L'objet apparaît ainsi comme un portrait et un autoportrait, changeant sans cesse avec le déplacement des perspectives. Tout en contenant la marque permanente de la présence de Dürer, le miroir évoque également les reflets fugaces d'observateurs de passage - les deux s'entremêlant pour un instant seulement. Eléonore de Valera traduit ce sentiment de fugacité par un mouvement réel, avec ses lignes graphiques et son lavis violet caractéristiques.

Azo-x large side table by Rohan Mudgal

Rohan Mudgal’s clean and minimal animation honours the recognizable brick red colour and sleek design of François Bauchet’s ‘Azo-X Large Side Table’. In the first of three short animations, segments of the Azo-X table base float on a white canvas. These hollowed slices twirl while the whole table rotates, and slowly all pieces fall into place.
