Summer in the city and metamatic:taf continues its unique umbrella programme CTRL+T, this time with the participation of Driewieler Collectief. The 3 artists Angelo Custodio, Arthur Guilleminot and Pedro Matias are based in Amsterdam, working on the discovery of a new and fresh (common) language, testing and bending the limits of their own practices, over-crossing unexpected art fields.
The collective’s work drifts conceptually around notions such as ‘new shapes’ of community, dystopia and redefinition of personal and social boundaries. The artists have “occupied” metamatic:taf -physically and virtually- since the 18th of August in order to deploy their artistic practice and develop research work based on an open process. Collecting tangible and intangible material while strolling around Athens and using metamatic:taf rooms as open studio where visitors are encouraged to talk to them, they are building their own mind map.
Since January 2016, with the occasion of the project Make today to Build Tomorrow, metamatic:taf and Flux Laboratory have formed a joint partnership program, that is highly unconventional. This will include the co-production of projects and interventions in situ, the exchange of artistic events between the two organizations, as well as the implementation of parallel events in various cultural venues around Greece.
metamatic:taf is currently hosting the exhibition Encounters with Memory by UHHI Projects that will be running until the 19th of May. Danish artists Lise Uhrskov and Mazja Hillestrøm (UHHi Projects) have invited 8 artists to join them in creating artworks that interpret their Encounter with Memory. Just before the curators left the city, we met for drinks and some small talk…
