A postcard from an imploded society. Bringing mundane objects to life to interpret place through materials, The Grand Bizarre transcribes an experience of pattern, labor and alienation. Following the collage of textiles, tourism, language and music, the film investigates recurring motifs and metamorphoses function within the global economy.
This film chronicles the travels of textiles. Just like Ferdinand Magellan, they can reach anywhere in the world by following geographical signs (a boarding pass, a map and a globe) and pass through the baggage tracks, train stations and airports. Using the forms of amination, documentary and music video, Jodie Mack presents colors and patterns that intersect and clash, and requires us to perceive in a totally new way driven by exceptional rhythms. The light, colors, patterns and sound show the exuberant impact of moving images. [JANG Byungwon]
