Ballerina Bulldog is a short film inspired and written around Karen Bit Vejle’s fantastic paper cut universe. About the pixie-like protagonist, Karen explains:
”The ballerina may at first sight seem fragile and tender. In reality she is powerful and knows how to defend herself when reality bites. She has a number of powertools that she uses in her fight for justice, beauty and joy.”
Karen Bit Vejle (born 1958) is one of Europe’s few psaligrafers. She has developed her own technique, and found her own symbolic world and unique expression during her 35 years of engagement in this rare art form. Bit’s cutouts are made out of one piece of paper, and merely cut with scissors.
