Version animée 2006 — Installations — 17 october - 17 december 2006
Born in 1977, lives and works in Paris
The young illustrator, filmmaker and cartoonist-animator Arthur de Pins made quite a stir when he first appeared on the French cartooning scene, creating in particular a short film called Géraldine that has taken numerous prizes.
His website is crammed with funny, sexy animated films as well as more philosophical works like La Révolution des crabes, which is being shown in this year's Version. This short black-and-white animated film, an irresistible and very personal version of Darwin's theory of the evolution of species, shows us how a crab of the so-called "depressive crab" variety manages to transcend its tragic fate when faced by necessity.
