︎ TEXT 

Acme Vision aims to question the codes which define the cartoon as a cinematographic or TV genre, not only by shedding new light on these
animation practices, but also by going beyond the characters and other visual signs that are regularly called upon when looking for links between cartoon and contemporary art.
The title of the show refers to the «Acme Inc.» Company imagined by Chuck Jones, one of Looney Tunes’s main authors, who was inspired by the Greek word «akmê», translatable as the idea of the extreme point of a tension, a statement or a situation.The reference to cartoons in the reading of a gesture, can also be seen as an attempt to emphasize the movement made by the artist in the production of a piece, the action itself and the strategy it expresses, like the traps that the characters set for each other.
These traps have above all as a finality the entertainment of the spectator by an expression without limit of the impulses attributed to each character. Moreover, these narrative mechanisms often come as a way to twist the
reflexes of our intern logic by avoiding the final situation that we would expect from what we already know of reality.This exhibition is partly inspired by a Muhka show, El Hotel Electrico, which reconsidered animation practices in its most original form by a choice of works that distinguished them from the moment when it was «constrained by the conventions and the industrial approach as a mass medium.»
Acme Vision is an attempt to counterbalance or create an impertinent follow-up to this proposal.
