Snow White d’Avignon
Synthesizing several different Disney fairy-tale animations and applying the principles of Cubism to the interpretation of its characters.
The animation Snow White d’Avignon is an interpretation of the fairy-tale Snow White, inspired by Pablo Picasso’s famous painting, “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon”. The beauty (or appearance) of the classic animation was deconstructed by the principles of Cubism in order to disconnect the linkage between beautiful appearance and happiness in fairy-tale animation, and also to deconstruct standardized animation characters by Disney.
The destinies of many characters in fairy-tale animations seem to be determined by their appearances instead of their personalities. This animation tries to offer different points of view about the appearances by deconstructing the beauty of the characters based on Cubism.
