An artistic practice as an array of collaborations intertwined and fused into an ensemble of concurrently resonating voices, toying with dissonance at times.
AV, HA, AMC, JK, and AS have been working together for years, expanding and contracting their distance or closeness.
Ich/Du, their collaborative – do not confuse with collective, they are not any such thing – exhibition explores modes of partnership without defined orbits.
The show elaborates and builds on a series of continuous threads of interests and conceptual thinking developed by each group member and AV. All these come together in one site-specific architectural setting growing through the Meetfactory’s exhibition space like an unfinished chemical experiment, continuously growing long after the show itself is long over.
AV & HA open windows through solid concrete, following up on their old project, which brought the storm, rain, or scorching sunshine into a gallery space all those years ago.
AV & AMC explore the history of the medium of photography and give it a new three-dimensional form to elaborate on pathways crossing centuries of thinking about technical images depicting reality and later on abstracting them to the threshold of the monochrome.
AV & JK think of words, sentences, and segments of expression losing traditional semiotic boundaries, relating a simple, generally known story, yet actually negating the possibility of saying anything.
AV & AS challenge the binding, the paper, the cover, the tangible experience of reading, or maybe even writing, or instead recording words in a printed format so familiar, yet getting distant every day.
AV & AS & JK & AMC & HA spread out a series of approaches and attempts to re-evaluate precisely defined and given codes of perception. They do not want to say much. Through the means at hand, they simply struggle to express the inner workings of their worldviews. They actually work. Simple as that. What else do we do, anyhow?
