Oranus by Mari-Liss Bassovskaja and Jelena Girlin

A so called everyman and his love, a T.V. soap opera heroine, star in a bizarre, grotesque, satirical commentary about our media-saturated consumer society. Outlandish and brilliant stop- motion claymation and mixed media collage both fascinates and disgusts.
