Performance artist/curator Willem Wilhelmus and video/performance artist Tomasz Szrama are both presenting their individual works at national and international events
Together they form the core of the team that organized (New) Art Contact experimental live art events and the Fake Finn Festival in Helsinki. Since 2005 they presented well over 200 Finnish and international artists (see www.newartcontact.net )
With the project Not Ready Yet they want to concentrate their collaborative energies on presenting their own art. The three week exhibition is meant to act as a lively dialogue between live performance and its documentation. "Lively" also in the sense of "not ready yet", of something in process.
During the exhibition performances will be presented and documented by video or photos that will in their turn trigger new performances (and videos etc.). In this way we hope to keep up a process of creative challenge and interaction, a process only slowed down by the effort to present the ultimate form. The project will be a public research into when and where to stop a creative process before presenting it.
The artists will be working every day from 12 noon till the galleries closing time during this three week exhibition.
Every day will start with coffee, talk and discussion.
Every week (f.e. Friday 5 - 7 p.m.) the work so far will be presented resulting in live actions. Guest artists might be invited then.
The result of this project will later be presented in printed form.
Although the main work will be done during the exhibition, some of the works will be prepared before the opening. The exhibition itself will become an alteration of preparing and presenting public performances.
The ending might be seen as more interesting than the opening.
Thursday 23 August at the Night of Arts from 7 p.m. in Gallery Jangva
Tomasz and Willem present the performance "An Introduction in Not Being Ready"
