Ann Course

»Shit Belt«

(2000) drawings, framed

Starting point for the animation films by British filmmaker Ann Course are simple drawings with an unmistakably rough and violent iconography. They show essential moments of private and domestic life, such as sex, death, violence, birth. With blatant directness and honesty images of emotional and interpersonal deformations are evoked. The disfigured and twisted characters never see a change for the positive but continue as an expression for the darkest motivations of the subconscious.
