What is Aardman? First, it is the company responsible for Wallace and Gromit, the most famous characters in British animation, and modern classics of the genre such as Chicken Run or Shaun the Sheep Movie. In a world where digital animation reigns, Aardman is a different concept. In its more than forty years of history, Aardman has created more than iconic commercials or invincible characters. Whether in frame-by-frame clay animation (its finest weapon) or in digital, Aardman stands out for the human work that puts into every project, and the way it reflects the purest of cinemas without rejecting modernity or warmth. By accessing dozens of files, the Aardman: The Form of Joy exhibition expresses that human print in the creation of Peter Lord and Nick Park, includes material ranging from sketches to documentary footage, and shows the precious metalwork that takes place in the company’s animation sets.
