Many of the works we encountered in 2015 that left a lasting impression on us were unique in their humor and lightness.
Anna Horvat's "Conversation" is a simple, painterly, realistic depiction of one woman's daily activities after returning home, all allegorized by an in-TV story inserted into the picture. There are tricks that one does not notice on the first viewing.
Georges Schwizgebel's "Erling" celebrates the fundamental appeal of animation with solid power.
Edmund Janson's "Seal Island" impresses with its emptiness, which never achieves its goal. The originality of the abstract form's movement shines through.
Ivan Maximov's "Bench No. 0458" is a high-quality variation on his previous works, warmly conveying a loving gaze toward the small creatures.
The male-female duo Tibor Banochuki and Salolta Szabo's "Nokori-Mono" is a colorful, magic-realistic depiction of social meaning in eating. (Koji Yamamura)
