Magritte

A film from the series „Impressions” made using computer animation. Based on Magritte’s motif of mysterious, empty room and his idea of creating images out of most contradictory objects and phenomena, the authors of the film have produced an imaginary museum of the artist’s imagination. Inspired by Magritte’s paintings, they have created a real, three-dimensional world, full of „quotations” from his works, full of weird requisites remaining in strange relationships with one another, whose poetics resembles that of a dream.
