Hosted by Ars Electronica at Bildraum 07, Vienna

In her animated film Deep Water and her erotic sketches, the award-winning Ukrainian artist Anna Dudko stages the sensual underwater fantasy of a mermaid who is craving human erotic love from deep within her soul. This full-bodied mermaid does not hide her woman’s desires and takes pleasure in observing the human world along a drain and touching people with water as if with her body.
After being part of the programme of more than twenty international festivals (Animafest Zagreb, ANIFILM, Fantoche IAFF, Stuttgart ITFS…) and already winning several international awards, her animated film Deep Water will be shown in Austria at Bildraum 07 for the very first time.
In the exhibition, the film will be presented along with erotic sketches and film backgrounds created by Yana “ja-shi” Shypova and Olga Havrylova
