A VOODOO FREE PHENOMENON - Animation

Garrett Phelan


Artist's biography

Garrett Phelan

Synopsis

'This is a throbbing animation, both hand-drawn and computer animated, flicking through many of Phelan’s most emblematic images. Phelan asks if we can ever really be free from inherited social practices? From the conditions and belief systems that shape and accompany us through our formative years and thereafter? Can we be free from institutions? Free from symbols? Free from history? It is an agonised position and these are agonised questions. But they are questions asked around the proximity of neolithic stones, of enduring objects which in Garrett Phelan’s way of thinking may have achieved this idea of freedom.'
