Vivarium
& collect
Often recycling the mechanical parts of found clocks and pushbikes as the portable containers of his ´animations´, Juan Fontanive´s interest lies in the beauty of sequential and repetitive movement. Hand drawn characters, human and typographical, occur in a cranky flip-book module powered by oxide. Pages fall in neat layers in the manner of a paper fountain, somewhere between film and sculpture - there is no ´screen´ as such. His filmstock is often pulped card or metal leaves. Juan grew up climbing the rusted iron bridges of Cleveland. While at the Royal College of Art, London, he breathed spirits into Victorian clocks. Currently, his studio is in a buzzing factory in Bushwick, NYC.
