THIS IS JUST TO DO SERIES:

Developed between 2000 and 2002, this series unfolded through an intermedia work process. The participant artists were challenged to explore and cross over the 'borders' of their disciplinary backgrounds - (re)shaping their practices in-between the territories of sound, movement, visual arts, video.

A collective work-in-progress develops the exploration of artistic and personal tools throughout the variability of the work-context. Individual and collective adaptability/ creativity - human relational dynamics - become part of the structure underlying a project that vouches for its "freshness" through continuing improvisations.

The series unfolded throughout a broad collective creation process, within a path set by Adriana Sa and Isabelle Schad. Engineered vectors were:

  • looking for balance(s) between improvising and structuring
  • balancing the relationship between personal "domains" - exploring the interaction of diverse sensibilities
  • extending, re-inventing and re-assimilating disciplinary and personal tools and experiences
  • exploring the meanings inherent to any specific working site-specifically within different spaces
  • articulating  the "absurd" within a game between tension, irony and seriousness
  • exploring, in a human and esthetical way, processes related to identity transfer, fusion and splitting
