Interview: Mélanie Duault | Maaad. Ly

Luca Curci talks with the artist Mélanie Duault | Maaad. Ly during CONSCIOUSNESS of ANIMA MUNDI festival 2017 in VENICE.

Mélanie Duault | Maaad. Ly is a visual artist and stop-motion maker obsessed with colors. She creates fun commercial stop-motion to bring cool products to life. Stop-motion is a technique to make a video with images only. Any colorful object can be an excuse to produce a video and animate still-life entity. Travels, games, daily-life inspires her a lot to come up with playful stories. Mélanie is passionate about food and ice cream and we can feel it in a lot of her videos. Sometimes Mélanie creates self-portrait where she paints herself to create monochromatic imagery. Her world is truly playful, graphic, visually appealing and so unique that each creation is like a signature. Real workholic she needs to work constantly to imagine new series. She finds collaboration with other artists very rich and so powerful. This is why she is always ready to collaborate to create new projects with different horizons. This is also an excuse to discover other artists and learn from each other. The artist travels a lot and is often found in Paris, in Brooklyn and in Portland!

Luca Curci – Do you agree with our vision of art and what you think about the theme of the festival?

Mélanie Duault | Maaad. Ly – I could agree more on your vision of spreading art featuring artist from all over the world. ANIMA MUNDI is a fascinating theme. It is all about the energy behind natural (or not) elements.

 

L.C. – In which way the video presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?

M.D. – This stop motion video brings to life apples. The video animates and gives a soul to natural elements that usually are not really moving.

L.C. – What role does the art have in society?

M.D. – Art is a way to express ourselves and certainly a way to protest too.

 

L.C. – How do you find creative inspiration?

M.D. – I get inspired by people around me, by other artists and life in general. I get a lot of my energy by people. When I walk in the street, go in the restaurant. Every thing can be turn into art even emotions!

L.C. – What is the most challenging part about creating your videos?

M.D. – The challenging part is the editing process in stop motion video. It’s is very slow and long. Going through every single images can drive me crazy honestly. But being detail oriented and patient is necessary in producing stop motion videos.

 

L.C. – What is your idea about It’s Liquid Group?

M.D. – It’s Liquid Group is a great platform that gives access to knowledge about the art scene in the world which is very useful for artists and art lovers. You connects artists around the world. What a great mission!
