RELATED ACTIVITIES:

BAND
A collective of four artists formed in early 2010.

BAND pushes the limits of form production through a body of work which stimulates all the senses. BAND is interested in what form collectivity can take as well as the inner working processes of groups. This has led us to treat our material in a particular way, using content to produce form and vice-versa. The material we incorporate into this process is far reaching, ranging from Set Theory, to Slash’s autobiography or from Group Materials’ meeting minutes to Erving Goffmans analysis of the performative in everyday situations.

Alongside this, we have come to embody both on and off stage the very content we began with: we are famous, glamourous artists and when we sneeze, hits come out.
