Animation (stop-motion animation, puppetry animation) is one of the key themes in the strange and magically surreal films by Cristóbal León and Joaquín Cociña. In their exhibition “The Third World” they show a video-installation made up of the 3 films “El Arca”, “El Templo” and “Padre. Madre.”, all of them produced during the last year.
These films are the foundational chapters of a new creed. They present a savage procession, moving between sacred and intimate, beautiful and horrific, canonical and arbitrary, sublime and bestial. Every film is the beginning of a myth and also its immediate decadence.
