By Erick Ricco

This Sample is dedicated to girl´s works who was discovered on Youtube downloading links related it hallucinated me, I had the impression to discover something very important and still unknowing. Mina Anguelova was born in 1988 at Bulgária and moved to Portugal while her childhood. With degrees in painting by the College of Fine Arts from University of Lisboa, She paints, draws and have a big video animation production.

All she does is posted immediately on the two channels she has on Youtube. One of them she sign with her own name and add works that use many animation techniques, beyond documentary , fiction and video art. In the another one she lives Miss Little Cute Bitch, a kind of provocative between filmmakers of the net that go to 2d animations in answer to postages of others visitors. The time of her works varies, there is since some seconds to little more than ten minutes. Between all, a series called “Little Songs About My Diseases” is remarkable. In there your heteronym sings with irony the sickness it supposed to suffer, Psoriasis, Candida and the first cocoon of bulimia cannibal. In both facets, the images that Mina made are monstrous, virulent, snotnose and colored and delicate. The necessity of publish her videos is so big that they are spat in the internet, sometimes unfinished , and the teenager opinion remembers the knowing series of videos that Sadie started and did inside her room on the 90. The work´s precariousness breaks with all the cultured to high definition on today´s date. Hers hostile esculacho back against to a superficial world, consumerist, repressed and, why not, emocore. Mina has so much anger to belongs hers generation, she cries angrily , but even hers acidity creates calm moments, beauty and an ironic innocence. The church, of course, also is a recurrent subject is treated with the same irritation. All of this gives Mina Anguelova a metallic character, of heavy metal culture – something witch Belo Horizonte so carries about – profane and provocative, made by impulse , something alike the firsts videos of the big Carlos Magno Rodrigues.

Even being a hard task to classify such production, Mina is indispensable in one sample dedicated to underground, because the characteristic most outstanding of her works is the rebellion that moves them.

Interview made for the blog Penicilinamuita (www.penicilinamuita.tk)

I know you were born in Sofia, Bulgaria, and then went to Lisbon. Tell me a little about this migration.

I was born in Sofia in the same period of transition from communism to democracy. My mother is a painter, my father a violinist. This period in Bulgaria was of great poverty and wish or freedom after the dictatorship. My parents fled, like many of his generation. We migrated to Portugal when I was four years old - I remember very little of life in Bulgaria. One of the few memories is exactly be pissing on the floor between the legs of protesters supporters of democracy. I think that sums up my political consciousness or rather, unconsciousness. I never passed this level.

I maintain strong relations with Bulgaria every year I spend at least a month there. I fell my self extremely Bulgarian, perhaps even more for never having lived there. I get thrilled and vibrate like crazy with all the Balkan myth of the spirit in all its aspects, from the purest folk to the more piggish gypsy and the cheapest and caddish mixtures of the chalga. Bulgaria is my lost paradise, my lost identity, an ideal that never existed, but we fantasize.

In addition to having developed this tendency to worship the ancestor, the rip of my root also led me to the opposite extreme, to the loss of identity and almost total availability to rehabilitation in the other/new, whatever it is. I conform myself and easily love the strange.

His family is Catholic? Have you been baptized, etc.?

I was baptized as Orthodox Christian. I have nothing against it, as I said I love the Orthodox iconography. But this issue is complicated and has a lot to be said. First, orthodox Christianity was suppressed by communism for 50 years ... Off of political, financial, worldly, interests, blah, blah. All that survived was its essence, its best. Second - this Christianity keeps a lot of what is the very strong Bulgarian pagan spirit. Thus we speak of a Christianity quite different from the Pope one.

I am interested in religion and would like to know more than what I know. From Christian, I read St. Augustine and little more. Recently I have been leaning about Taoism. I do not know if there is God ... But often it seems that I see Him.

What you do today? Talk about work and study and when and how you started drawing, painting or doing videos.

I started drawing when I was born ... Or better before I was born, being that my mother already was painting... Or best yet painted before she was born, my grandfather carved and painted, and before him my great-grandfather... And as legend tells that great-grandfather of this great-grandfather was a Dutch sculptor. So I think I've been in the arts since the beginning of time. Drawing since I can remember ... And I always knew and said I would be a painter.
Video I started doing as soon as I got a camcorder ... I think at age 15. I play xylophone since I bought a xylophone, flute since I have a flute, etc. I express myself with what I have. I do it spontaneously, on my own initiative and without any purpose than to kill the boredom. For a while I studied art and thought I would live by art, but to make art a work was to make the boredom killer a boredom. So now I got back to work in order to make art again.

I wanted you to describe the tools you use to do your works.

The tools for music: instruments, very cheap mp3 audio recorder. The editing I do in Audacity. For video: SX200IS Canon digital photo camera, or Sony DCR-HC23 camera. I edit in Windows Movie Maker. For animations I use the Windows Paint, Photoshop and Movie Maker.

You quote in your work and social networks: Harmony Korine, Lourenço Mutarelli, David Lynch, Daniel Johnston ... Name a few artists that influence you.

Jan van Eyck, Rogier van der Weyden, Jean Fouquet - all Gothic, the whole medieval illumination, the orthodox iconography ... I must confess that my great loves are in the past, fascinates and inspires me a lot more the Aztecs pictures, Japanese prints, African sculptures, masks of Bulgarian or Portuguese folklore than any contemporary artist. Anyway, from the twentieth century I can name Otto Dix, Glen Brown ... But more than these, from the art of the present time, cinema interests me, it is difficult to choose favorites, but occur to me at the moment Takashi Miike, Lars Von Trier, Kubrick, Terry Gilliam, Vincent Gallo and Herzog.

In misslittlecutebich YouTube channel, your heteronym, makes several videos in response to Jamie’s¬ (youtube.com/jayvlog89) postings. Why is misslittlecutebitch obsessed with Jamie? Does she live a platonic passion for him?

Lol ... Jamie is pretty cool. Why is she obsessed with him? She's crazy and uncontrolled, do not hesitate to throw herself head for every man, food, hobby that will kill the boredom. All in her is consumed in a very strong and very fast combustion. Everything is so fast that it is hard to say why. She never thinks, only feels. I guess she likes him because he's handsome and popular. For sure it’s a platonic love, since it is herself to be a platonic being. A suppressed alter ego, one among many. I’m a seven-headed dragon (Bulgarian mythological creature) in a head only. Imagine the frustration!

What do you think of coats made of animal skins?

Look, I have a leather jacket. I have boots and leather shoes. I eat meat, I eat fish. Although, last summer I helped my grandmother to kill a goat for my brother’s birthday party. I think it's normal that we use animals to eat and clothe ourselves. I do not think it’s normal to happen in a totally alienated and impersonal way. To kill a goat or a chicken is common in the village of my grandparents, but when you kill the animal, you kill a friend who you cared and sawn growing, a part of you ... Confront yourself to your own death. The animal and its meat are something precious, respected, loved and spared.

Obviously this is all lie in the city, and I live 11 months of my year cloistered in the city, a metropolis’s microscopic pin. Nothing passes me through the hands, I live in total ignorance of everything that surrounds me and I just focus on my specialization. I try to keep me minimally informed about what I consume not to be an accomplice in barbarity, but for sure I do a lot of shit without realizing it.

SITA SINGS THE BLUES – NINA PALEY – 82’- USA – 2008 – 35mm

Sita is a Hindu goddess, the leading lady of India’s epic the Ramayana and a dutiful wife who follows her husband Rama on a 14 year exile to a forest, only to be kidnapped by an evil king from Sri Lanka. Despite remaining faithful to her husband, Sita is put through many tests. Nina (the filmmaker Nina Paley herself) is an artist who finds parallels in Sita’s life when her husband – in India on a work project - decides to break up their marriage and dump her via email. Three hilarious Indonesian shadow puppets with Indian accents – linking the popularity of the Ramayana from India all the way to the Far East - narrate both the ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the epic.

In her first feature length film, Paley juxtaposes multiple narrative and visual styles to create a highly entertaining yet moving vision of the Ramayana. Musical numbers choreographed to the 1920's jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw feature a cast of hundreds: flying monkeys, evil monsters, gods, goddesses, warriors, sages, and winged eyeballs. A tale of truth, justice and a woman’s cry for equal treatment. Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as "The Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told."

Nina Paley (b. May 3, 1968, Champaign IL, USA) is a longtime veteran of syndicated comic strips, creating "Fluff" (Universal Press Syndicate), "The Hots" (King Features), and her own alternative weekly "Nina's Adventures." In 1998 she began making independent animated festival films, including the controversial yet popular environmental short, "The Stork." In 2002 Nina followed her then-husband to Trivandrum, India, where she read her first Ramayana. This inspired her first feature, Sita Sings the Blues, which she animated and produced single-handedly over the course of 5 years on a home computer. Nina teaches at Parsons School of Design in Manhattan and is a 2006 Guggenheim Fellow.
