Iga Puchalska is a Polish born artist who concentrates on traditional hand-drawn and experimental animation. Her work involves intimate investigations of social politics and the human experience that is mediated through interviews. That’s How it is, is an animation based on an interview with Puchalska’s parents discussing the family’s immigration from Poland. In the animation, Puchalska not only translates her parents’ answers, but more importantly translates their gestures through drawing. In That‘s How it is Puchalska acts as the mediator between her parents’ experience and the viewer.
