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! (vivacalaca.com) 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.”

Homunculus is an amazing short movie by Hydra:

“Homunculus is a dark and twisted fable of spontaneous generation and untrammeled id. Taking its title from the Latin word for “Little Human”, the piece is an associative mashup between the two concepts behind the word: The first being middle-age alchemical beliefs that “little men” could be spontaneous generated from dead or decaying matter. The second being Carl Jung’s usage as a personification of pure id.”
