A western style stills animation portraying the artist dressed up as the good, the bad, and the Mexican characters, riding on big pillow couches at a construction site in the suburbs of Tel Aviv. IDYLL DISTORTION "Refined hyperrealism, aesthetic asceticism, Multi – progressive traveling, Interactive multi-dimensional, there is a lot to mock of " (Jean Baudrillard, America, p.48). Ilan Yona celebrates capitalism with humor and self-awareness. His Baudrillardrian world celebrates the social-moral distortion by deconstructing the visual narrative with intelligent use of cinematic language. Yona creates ex nihilo, builds hyper-reality, flooded with overused images & cinematic cliché. His fairies are mass production pieces, and refer to the only promised fantasy they hold. His characters are an extreme replica and a by-product to consumerism. Ilan Yona’s work motivates itself out of a strong urge to work within the boundaries of familiar genres. By appropriating the genre and twisting its rules of action Yona creates silent sabotaging acts. He melts together the various types without considering hierarchies of cultural and commercial, personal and social, arts and crafts. Yona creates pastiche by combining techniques of animation, three dimensional pre-visualization, video and photography thus creating replica clichés of the genres he manipulates. The distance created between Yona’s work and the original source, whether iconic or taken from readymade image banks, allows him to raise discussion that exists on the axis between the biographical and the social. Yona duplicates himself, changes roles and parts in his idyllic fantasy. He is the good, the bad & the ugly in a local suburb western, a flock of fairies, an army of laborers, a useless redneck and characters from a Japanese TV show who demonstrate the word ‘LOVE’ with their body (taken from a new video work that is in progress). Yona investigates a world where the distortion takes place as an exaggerated-hedonist-nihilist-capitalist party that lacks any moral reference, an Idyll Distortion.
