Artist: Magali Charrier
Commissioned and Curated by PUMA / Shooting People
Music / Sound Design: Nick Ryan
Animator artist and film maker Magali Charrier invited me to sound design her film Peace Starts with me. The film was a commissioned by PUMA and was one of 7 art works commissioned from different artists around the world concerning the idea of Peace for the World Peace Festival 2011. The film was subsequently broadcast on Channel4 in October 2011 as part of Random Acts.
Magali Charrier is an experimental filmmaker and animator and a gruadate from the Royal College of Art in 2010. She juxtaposes live action and animation to investigate the moving body and its failings.
“Peace starts with me. Here. My body. Through fragmentation and dislocation, this film explores the body as a place where inner conflicts and tensions are played out. A frenetic collage gives way to a more serene version of the body. Peace comes as a sudden breath born out of chaos.”
