In 1963, Erró (b. 1932) created the set and props for the experimental film Mechanical concerto for madness or the mad mechamorphosis by French director and writer Éric Duvivier. The task was not far from themes within his art practice, which already deeply explored collage and three-dimensional assemblages of found and ready-made images and objects. Erró’s interest in technology and science, his fascination with the mechanical world, and increased participation in the emerging scene of happenings and experimental film inspired the work. The imaginary, the surreal, science fiction, and the potential of the human body to be something other than organic; machine, mechanized, or artificial, inform ways to read this film and Erró’s contribution to it.
