The Bambi Foundation

Written by Valentina on . Posted in art


The Bambi Foundation supports contemporary non-object art projects, with an emphasis on experimental cinema and projected image installations. The foundation accepts proposals from a wide range of artists, disciplines and medium, and focuses on works that cannot be easily accommodated by market-based art scenes. It offers up to 8,000 euro per project and even more, depending on the requirements of the project.

In the previous year the foundation has supported projects of artists such as Brice Dellspreger, Catherine Sullivan, Mirjam Thormann and Adam Rabinowitz.

The committee assembles three times a year. Each application should include a short description of the project, timeframe, budget, a short description of the applying artist’s work, and images of previous works. Next deadline is set for 10th July 2010.

Ritxi Ostáriz

We featured Ritxi Ostáriz‘s work some time ago. Now he released a new video: Pink Elephants on Parade, which is a tribute to a very well known scene from Disney’s classic film Dumbo.
Also, this is the second chapter of the ¡Viva Calaca! ( project.
Great work, as usual…

“The story happens immediately after what happened on the first video of the project, where a group of little skulls danced at the celebration of the arrival of the Day of the Dead in a very small and typical village in Mexico. At this second chapter, once the party has ended, one of the little skulls drinks more than recommended, and starts having some terryfing nigthmares, as it happens to the little Dumbo at Disney’s film. Music on the piece is performed by the Seattle (USA) band-show Circus Contraption, that have created an amazing version of the original theme appearing on the film. I hope you enjoy this new video.”
