A gray mushroom cloud

with Liam Gillick


Using the cat and mouse theme often found in cartoons, this animated film in ten episodes stars a cat and a mouse called Briannnnn and Ferryyyyy, in homage to the British singer. The two characters chase each other, hurt each other, die, and continue the fight in heaven. The credits at the end of each episode list quotations, ideas and the names of both imaginary and real people. The work reflects humorously on intellectual property rights, as well as on popular and artistic creation. The episodes were written by Gillick, drawn by Parreno and animated by a young New York-based artist, Ivan Orkney. The typography was originally designed by M/M (Paris).
