Mécaniques Discursives delivers jerky animations with old-fashioned image reproductions, it’s as if they’ve plundered a Victorian box of curiosities and left us with a sinister installation.
Adopting the most recent forms of technology, Fred Penelle and Yannick Jacquet have produced a mechanical infusion of skewed: heads, figures, and animals. All of which move along a seamless conveyor belt, like the formation of an imaginary laboratory experiment. As the narrative of the belt pulls us along this jolty journey; spewing off at different angles. Breaking the fourth wall and leading us astray on this disconnected odyssey, were left only tangled in its inventive creation.
