Help this unexpected marriage between a classical singer, a designer and a visual artist!
We (Driewieler Collectief) are organising our very first exhibition and we need your help to finish and finance the last stage of production of Jump Through that Pink Looking-Glass !
In the opening night, we are preparing a dinner-performance, to bring together press, curators, artists and programmers to an informal but rather peculiar gathering. This dinner will happen with help of our amazing volunteers but we want to be able to offer them food, drinks and some comfort while they help us.
We also need still some financial contribution for the printing of our fanzine /bit/.
We need you to help our volunteers and us. Please, share our crowd-funding and donate if you can. Any contribution is welcome and you will have your name in the exhibition as a sponsor, making all of us ready to ‘change the world’.Join us and be part of this exciting project.
LET’S jump, together, through that pink ‘looking-glass’ !
Driewieler Collectief is founded in 2010 by Pedro and Angelo when they moved to Amsterdam, with Arthur joining in 2014. With artistic and personal similar beliefs the 3 artists are committed in finding a new and fresh (common) language, testing and bending the limits of their own practices, over-crossing unexpected art fields.
The collective explores notions such as unfitting, uncanny, pop culture, queerism or fetishism.
There is a need for questioning the status quo, proposing through our unique vision, new perspectives and opening possibilities of a new perception of the reality. Normality must be fought’, the artists say.
Angelo (countertenor / live artist) brings his knowledge in body awareness, use of voice and composition skills willing to expand the horizons and uses of sound or noise but also the voice and (stage) performativity. Angelo works from his own experiences towards the society; from the individual to the communal; using himself as a mirror of the surroundings.
Arthur (object and conceptual designer) explores the expanded use of objects. With a background in product design, Arthur prefers to investigate and emphasise the use of an object rather than fall into aestheticism. The created product becomes alive by the interaction with the human body and its expressivity.
Pedro (live artist - director) explores in his work the relation between performer, object and physicality created between these two. Deeply interested in playing with the perception of the viewer and in redefining the boundaries between audience and performers, Pedro is willing to explore the sensation and experience range within the art work. With a strong interactive component, the audience is often pushed to become a spontaneous participant, creating, together with the performers repetitive and obsessive actions, amplified and bended to an extreme.
