1923 aka Heaven, Max Hattler

“I am interested in the space between abstraction and figuration, where storytelling is freed from the constraints of traditional narrative. My work contemplates microcosms, moments, atmospheres: Close­ups as reflections on the big picture. While my films tend to be without dialogue, they explore the relationship between sound, music and the moving image.”

Here is the latest animated offering from artist Max Hattler – two films inspired by the paintings ‘A Symbolic Composition of the Spiritual World’ made by French outsider artist Augustin Lesage in 1923 and 1925 respectively. Over a period of five days in February 2010, Max Hattler created these two animation loops with student animators and CG artists at The Animation Workshop - Center for Animation in Viborg, Denmark.

The films are screening in a solo exhibition at the Lumen Eclipse public art space in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, from April to June 2010.
