Don’t miss the 3 Art Installations on the Auroville Filmfestival 2020:

Julietta Kuehle – The Corpse Bride in the Centre d’Art Citadines video room

“Being a fan of movies by Tim Burton, I once came across the animated film ‘Corpse Bride’ and instantly knew there was a connection. 

I started pottery in Auroville, making small faces and heads. They grew bigger with time, they were somehow born, wanting to look as they decided to look. The figures from the movie called to be materialized. So I began to let them come into existence. Emily, the Corpse Bride, was the final piece.”

About the film ‘Corpse Bride :

Kirk Honeycutt (The Hollywood Reporter): “A wondrous flight of fancy, a stop-motion-animated treat brimming with imaginative characters, evocative sets, sly humour, inspired songs and a genuine whimsy that seldom finds its way into today’s movies.”

Orly in the Town Hall Foyer

“This is the new world and this is the new consciousness and this is the new Power; it is possible, and it is, and will be more and more manifest BECAUSE it is the new world, because it has never been before.” ~ The Mother

Inspired by the words of Auroville’s founder ‘The Mother’, and her vision; ‘A new world is possible’, Orly Alon Merguei has created a miniature village of altered old brushes, by-products of a throw-away society. The worn-out brushes have been transformed into charming and memorable characters, portraying people with diverse backgrounds; race, religion, social class and gender, representing an international community.

Lili Dreikhausen and Marco Feira – The Rainbow and the Moose in the Town Hall Plaza

‘The Moose’ is a sculptural installation made with coconut rope around a wire mesh structure mounted on an wooden armature. It was first shown at an exhibition in Auroville in March 2018. It is combined with a two dimensional work of Marco, called ‘Rainbow’ made out of waste material and lights.

Milo – Planet Unity, opposite Cinema Paradiso (MMC)
The ‘Planet Unity’ cutout installation aims to add a bit of fun as well as publicise the film festival, encouraging people take and publish pictures of themselves with it. Juggling with various options,  finally a group of genderless characters were chosen. ‘Planet Unity’ shows a tree with a colourful bird perched on it’s branch, sharing a forest scene with a blue child hanging on the back of a sitting zebra. 15 year old Milo conceived and painted the panels over the course of two weeks.
