    The Anatomy of The Flock | 2013 - 2015

The Anatomy of The Flock (2015) is a video installation (HD video 4' 30" ) and a lenticular image (120 cm x 60 cm). It is a research on the reasons and mechanisms of the "willing to believe". It is about detecting the weary unconcern towards reality and the waiting for miracles to happen. The video is an animation loop. It is composed of several collage-like scenes. The background is based on a 3D space with textures of photos of real estate advertisements that were downloaded from the internet. The protagonists are invented characters that are painted and animated in 2D. We see them while they exercise self healing, rebirth, purification, being beautiful or simply just 'good'. Their means (tools) are miraculous and esoteric. These absurd time passings are charged with a strange mixture of religion, shamanism and international esotery. The lenticular image is animated when the spectator walks in front of it. The figures are 3D models mounted with the artist's paintings as textures. It shows a manipulated mass of (not necessarily religious) believers. A study on the happiness of people that subordinates itself to a leader.
