Surface Tension_Curitiba

Continuing work being produced and explored through the Surface Tension publications, artists/editors Ken Ehrlich (Los Angeles) and Brandon LaBelle (Copenhagen), will meet in Curitiba, Brazil, to collaborate with local artists Octávio Camargo and Guilherme Soares. Collaborations will be based on exploring the city of Curitiba, as an environment, thereby fostering an exchange between local understanding and foreign perspective: how each meet to negotiate observations and interpretations about the city and its activities, structures, inhabitants and rituals. Research will lead to investigations of urban infrastructures, from home environments to electrical power, local cultures to practices of minor production. The collaborations will result in the exhibition of works and the presentation of events, such as cooking performances and radio broadcasts.
How might a model of working on site incorporate the limits or resistance of the site itself?
