The animation sculpture “The Outlander” consists of a hand-drawn animated documentary telling the true story of the elephant Süleyman who travelled trough places, people and time. His life story and huge exhausting journey in the 16th Century ended when he was turned into shoes four centuries later.
The film was made of around 5000 pencil drawings on paper. Using the technique of papier-mache, these original drawings were used for the creation of the sculpture in the shape of a shoe.
The work was exhibited in the Museum de São Roque (Lisbon) in 2018.
The animation sculpture “The Outlander” was created in collaboration with the sculptor Dimiter Ovtcharov.
