INSIDEOUT: The imagination becomes a character
Morcky launches his second publication, INSIDEOUT, through a crowdfunding in Verkami where raised more than 5000 Euros.
InsideOut is a graphic novel. A tale of galactic adventures that take place in a rusty futuristic universe which the inner world of the characters (Inside) comes out (Out) and conquer the reality.
This graphic novel combines the artist passion for drawing and video, giving life to his last illustrated characters.
The difference in between this one and his previous monograph 'Day and Night', which was publish in a convencional way, the artist prefers to self-publish this new book on a way where he can manage the entire process since the conception till realization.
The crowdfunding is a good way to promote a project and share it with anyone interested. Since for the public is a great opportunity to get one examplar back home for a more affordable price than in bookstores. Besides to be able to achieve a number of products related to the work.
The book consists of seven chapter which one tells the story about one character, lost in their own exploring travel through galaxies. Initially deattached, the protagonists finally coincide in an empty and timeless dimension where everything seems to come together and merge harmoniously.
The "journey" is the leitmotif of the novel. Is a metaphor of the subjective interpretation of the world through the experience and way which it converts into reality.
The imagination plays a central role in this inside/outside travel (InsideOut) at times taking the form of the characters.
Three kids - one little girl and two boys - they are the protagonists. They act by instinct and tend to fuse their dreams with reality. the journey has a playful, bittersweet flavor and its experienced as an imaginary discovery.
However the explorer is a wise mythical creature in search of the truth. His pragmatic imagination always leads him to the right direction. Another important character is the gentle gigant, a mix of innocent childhood and mature control. He never acts with a hidden motivation and represents the bridge between childrens and adults.
Morcky is an Italian artist who has been living and working in Amsterdam (NL) since 2002. His first involvement in graffiti and street art has evolved in what is now his passion for drawings, on the one hand, and videos, on the other.
Morcky’s illustrations and paintings are mostly a figurative representation of inner experiences that tend to highlight contradictions and paradoxes. His style well expresses such a contrast, since the very detailed images appears sometimes sketchy.
His work has been shown in museums, galleries and art festivals all over the world. Among others, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Den Haag (NL), at Auditorium in Rome and at Scion Gallery in Los Angels (USA). iN 2010, Morcky released his first monograph 'Day and Night': a black and white drawing collection that explores emotional contradictions.
Morcky video work is very diverse in styles an rhythms. The way he uses and combine different techniques define his unique style. Mainly working with 'Hello, Savants!', a collective of creative individuals focused on the development of multidiscuplinary projects, specially animation and video clips. They have worked for artist like Anouk and Roger Sánchez and they've been shown in several festivals as RestFest and OneDotZero.
