Ab Ovo

Anita Kwiatkowska-Naqvi
Ab ovo
Poland 2012 / 6’

The body of a woman, fragile and alluring, has stopped belonging exclusively to her and is slowly changing into the body of a mother. Someone else lives inside, who dictated his/her own conditions, taking up more space, not caring at all that the woman is feeling more claustrophobic in her own skin. A plasticised animation full of life and emotion about the stages of life and the dramatic changes a woman undergoes.

Anita Kwiatkowska-Naqvi

She was born in 1986 in Krakow. A graduate in psychology at the University of Warsaw, student of animation at the the Polish National Film, Television and Theatre School in Łódź. Kwiatkowska-Naqvi presents an innovative approach to traditional animated techniques, by creating hypnotizing and poetic worlds.
