Bifido, Don Quixote and Sheep on Cell Phones at GarGar Festival

Posted on May 31, 2016

The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha by Cervantes inspired this new wheat-pasted scene by Italy’s Bifido at the Gar Gar Festival in Panelles, Spain. His new interpretation of a metaphor is drawn from the scene in chapter 8 where Don Quixote and his sidekick servant Sancho are riding their horses up the road and see two clouds ahead of them. Quixote’s wild imagination mistakes them for dual great armies on the edge of war with one another and he describes them aloud in detail based on the forms he sees in the dust.

Sancho warns him that those shapes that he sees are simply dust clouds from herds of sheep and not to be afraid. But of course the macho testosterone meathead Quixote cannot wait to go to war and gallops in swinging his big sword, later to discover he has slaughtered a number of sheep and that a couple of nearby Shepherds are angry at him. They throw stones at the buffoon and break a lot of his teeth. Rather than admit he was wrong he tells Sancho that they had actually been armies but sorcerers has transformed them into sheep. Right.

So that worked out really well.

Later, there is a very detailed vomiting scene. No kidding.

Here the sheep are played by people all around us right now, cradling their electronic devices in hands, sort of oblivious to the world around them. He says the kid with the sword is fighting “against the contemporary man who spend a lot of time with his smartphone like a sheep.”

Truly, by now, it is an army. But who does the kid represent in this case? We’re not sure.
