What is Essays?
Essays is a film series that explores the possibilities of an art analysis that goes beyond its traditional form, namely, the written word. It aims to establish a visual style, and a structural scheme, all while exploring different mediums. Each film focuses on an art piece: “Object to be Destroyed” by Man Ray, “Electric Chair” by Andy Warhol, and lastly, “Untitled Anthropometric” by Yves Klein.
Klein’s painting is a commemorative piece, honoring human existence. The minimalistic and exclusive use of the color blue is reinterpreted not as a color but as earths basic elements, the ocean and the sky.
