Against the sacred and time-tossed setting, the artist's creations cast an uncanny spell: Inanimate yet alive, abandoned as scrap or carrion, yet newly born.
The real star of this show is not the family but the otherworldly objects they churn out.
An unusual, lightly surreal and unorthodox documentary by Jarred Alterman, Convento takes an unconventional approach that accentuates its subjects and never exploits them.
Every member of the three-person family has found aesthetic fulfillment uniquely suited to the ancient retreat, as does helmer Alterman, who revels in serene vistas teeming with hybrid creations.
Alterman's camerawork, panning and zooming about Christiaan's ants, rabbits, birds, and other assorted mecha creatures, conveys a sense of ominous religious awe.
Alterman's camera languidly soaks up the landscape, lingering long enough so that we can appreciate both the beauty of the setting and the surprising dialogue created between it and Christiaan's artwork.
This unortho-doc ultimately doesn't need to explain much more about its subjects' motivations because its images provide their own explanation.
A complex melding of the natural and the machine, his robotic art pieces are at once beautiful and yet things nightmares are made of.
Convento captures the casually reassuring pleasure, as well as the potentially disconcerting oddness, of seeing something commonplace anew.
