Project Details:

Dialogues, character design, sound desing, voice acting, drawings and all other details… Our animation work “Mercury” which is produced by attentive and long workhours, takes part in various local and international festivals.

Synopsis:

A young artist who works as a gallery assistant is taken to a luxurious dinner with her boss, a gallery owner, after an international art fair. An art collector, a curator and an institution director join the table where she is introduced to the absurd and corrupt hierarchy of the art world. She observes the table all night and tries to take part in the conversation, but she is not acknowledged. In every attempt to communicate with the important figures of the art world, she is disappointed.
