The Grand Bizarre

The CCCB's cinema

Jodie Mack

Filmed over five years in several countries, this travel journal based on clothing shows us hundreds of textiles and prints dancing in different locations such as Mexico, Morocco and India. An animated film literally made up of clothing, where motifs interlace together and with the landscapes, creating incredible rhythms and associations. 

This is Jodie Mack’s first experimental animation film; apart from showing her short films in festivals and museums all over the world, in 2018 she was selected to create animations on the huge screens in Times Square.

This film, through for the most part industrial production material, makes for a piece that appeals to all the senses and which once again highlights there is no object too humble to become a work of art.  

The session is completed with her latest short and both films will be premiered in Barcelona.
