Certain people need to be told how to “say f**k you to the world once in a while” as Sol LeWitt knew, and in his 1965 letter to sculptor Eva Hesse he advised her to say just that. I don’t know if Eva took his advice – this was before the punk revolution so perhaps it was a little bit lost – but MOCAtv have brought this conversation back to life in the form of this animation by Aaron Rose and Thomas McMahon.
Enlisting the band Rancid to help them out, the film is set to the sounds of the band singing the words of the historic letter in a kind of dirty, angry punk way. The animations? They’re nuts as well – the kind of shapes and colours you can imagine Sol LeWitt would have dreamt about at night.
