Stop & Go 3-D Stop-Motion Animation Festival

Saturday, October 13, 2012, 7pm

Stop & Go 3-D is the third installment of the Stop & Go stop-motion animation series and it dramatically plays with our visual senses. Strobing effects, afterimages, anaglyphic experiments, optical elements and three-dimensional spoofs are all part of the show. The festival presents a broad range of emerging works in the field of stop-motion animation, and pushes the boundaries of cinematic possibility by showcasing a diversity of techniques.  The short films, culled from all over the world, include works that play with perceptual illusions and 3-D experimentation. It includes work by Dutch animators Iemke van Dijk, José Heerkens, Johan Rijpma, Albert Roskam, and Mark de Weijer.

May 2012

In 2011 José Heerkens was artist-in-residence at The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. During the artist residence the works ‘Meet me in Brooklyn’ came into being. She wrote a short text for the works and brought it together in the book ‘Meet me in Brooklyn’. The idea that “They are like film stills”challenged her to make this short movie.

A Romance of Many Dimensions is comprised of 9 artists/painters who share at least two things: their work expands the idea of dimensionality past the exactitude of two and three-dimensional space, and, they have had all been interviewed by me. You can find the interviews posted online at Visual Discrepancies.

August 1 – October 31, 2011

José Heerkens, who lives and works in Zeeland – Noord Brabant, the Netherlands, is invited by The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation for an artist residency. From the beginning of August until the end of October she has the great opportunity to work and live in a studio of the Foundation in Bethany CT. It is a place for concentration. The work of José Heerkens is non objective. She states: “I search for simpleness and clearness in my visual language; for the balancing dialogue between a line and the movement of color. In my work the line is always an important means to visualize space. Lines are open and at the same time they create form and rhythm. Lines also convey the colors over the canvas.”
