‘Silent jokes’, The DVD, contains 18 short films of the Antwerp based artist Jan Leenders. In the films you see Jan telling a joke. The joke’s in English but the sound’s off. Luckily enough there are subtitles. That made this object so damn interesting to Onomatopee: the nice exchange of text, sound (actually non-sound) and visuals (one can almost hear Jan talk when looked at him on screen). Furthermore: the humour is nicely dry.
