|Still from Taxonomy (2011) by Karen Aqua|
The ICA remembers KAREN AQUA
Aqua’s innovative films occupy a unique place in Boston’s independent and experimental animation scene, and have screened worldwide at festivals in Europe, Asia, North/South America, and New Zealand. The ICA presents a variety of her award-winning films, from earlier projects to her final piece, including a selection of animated segments she made for Sesame Street.
Created from exceptionally refined and colorful drawings, Aqua’s style is also characterized by compelling subject matter, exploring the human condition through themes of culture and transformation. Aqua stated, “I strive to create films which are more poetry then prose, making visible the invisible.”
The screening pays tribute to Karen Aqua, who passed away in May 2011.
