First Floor, The Box
Ezra Wube: Tales of Home presents a group of five stop-motion animation videos of New York-based, Ethiopian artist Ezra Wube.
The shorts feature vignettes about urban life in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and visual depictions of Ethiopian oral folktales. The artist uses a range of material, including paint, paper cut-outs, seeds, plants, and photography, to create intriguing films highlighting daily life in Ethiopia’s largest city and fantastical, oral folk tales from the artist’s youth.
