French Penguin

2009. video (color, sound), media player, screen or projector, 3 min loop
French Penguin fuses Gothic architecture with an Emperor Penguin, creating a new absurd life form. Like one of Dante’s nine circles, the short film portrays an ominous world where a penguin’s cyclical actions create a metaphorical, hallucinatory and hellish narrative.
