Christiaan Zwanikken

On April 17th, SPACE will be screening Convento, a documentary about kinetic artist Christiaan Zwanikken.  Zwanikken reanimates the skeletal remains of deceased wildlife that he collects from the nature reserve surrounding the 400 year old Portuguese monastery where he lives and works with his family.  Below are some examples of his work.

Almost all of these pieces are animated in some way, check out this compilation of some of Mr. Zwanikken’s work from a few years ago.  Two shorts will accompany Convento: Lifelike, a film about a taxidermist at work, and The Meaning of Robots, about a maker of Robots in a tiny New York apartment.
