New year, new Appetite! We haven’t posted the entire 2018 but that’s not because we were sleeping. On the contrary – we’ve been busy making the storyboard, beautifully drawn by renowned animator Velislava Gospodinova . We’re looking forward to sharing some of the drawings with you once the process is complete!

We’ve been sprucing up our character design lately and we’re almost done!
On May the 3rd our exhibition opened with a bang at the Porcelaingres space in Berlin. There were three great performances, in the atmosphere created by Yagama’s rabbit and cannibalistic paintings and photos, research elements towards the film, illustrations and the stomach installation.
First, inside the tentacled visceral world of the Rabbit’s innards created by Yagama and Eva Gardner, there was an improvisational performance with the film’s actors. The costumes were by Odile Hautemulle, props by Michi Ukawa, with Dieter Rita Scholl, Lynn Femme, Ada Kowalewski, Tomer Dotan and Stephen Patrick Hannah, art direction and direction by Yagama.
The next performance by Grapeshade took place in another room of this beautiful space. The group plays with violin, bass and dance in and innovative and improvisational way. The members of the band present were Klaus Janeke, Ingo Reulecke, and the violin player in our film, Biliana Voutchkova.
The party ended on an idm note with our sound artist Viktor Marinov playing a dj set with his own music as Vataff Project.
It was a wonderful beginning to our project and we hope to raise some funds as well as the show goes on.
All art is available as prints of various sizes. The exhibition continues until June, so if you are in Berlin, be sure to check it out! Yagama will be announcing guided tours of the exhibition explaining the project for those who couldn’t come to the opening.T he information will appear here and www.facebook.com/appetiteproject here.
