Co-lab Editions, curated by Márcio Carvalho, is a program initiated by Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung (director and founder of Savvy Contemporary) and Márcio Carvalho, produced and supported by Savvy Contemporary in cooperation with Hotel25.
The program will be dedicated to an exchange between artists that use Performance art as one of their primary working media.
It is important to find a common denominator in cultural differences and the affinities inside the work methodologies.
Artists working inside Live Performance, Video performance and Installation Performance will be invited to participate in this project. It will be important to mix these artists, attempting to create possibilities of formal and theory engagements within the SAVVY Contemporary concept and space.
The first editions, between March and December 2011, will be dedicated to an exchange between one artist based in Berlin and another from abroad, as well as a discourse between the West and the non-West.
By placing together Magnus Logi Kristinsson, with his “list reading” practice, in which he constantly works around the unnoticed, the obvious and the already known, and the non-expressive way that Stefan Riebel deals with information, working with basic questions about complex subjects, I think a very interesting work collaboration will arise. Both of the artists are researchers working in different medias, having a conceptual starting point to attain very interesting forms, points of view and new perspectives about several subjects. In both of their works the "Fact" and the "Language" become a poetic ornament, a sculpture, a painting, something physical and alive that brings a strange conscience about small things in live.
