Erdmane-Schouten Collaborations

 

 

Since 2014 I have been collaborating on several diverse projects with Latvian artist Inga Erdmane. Our approach is to engage a specific situation and see how it can inspire an exchange between us. The exchange is always anchored in the exploration of movement time and space, with the intensity of the collaboration depending on the situation at hand. Rarely do we know beforehand how the project will develop, we keep it open and let the circumstances guide the direction we take.

# Karosta Water Tower Project

 

 

 

A choreography can be defined as a series of movements through a specific space for a determined amount of time. A fluid sculpture can be described as a collection of undetermined actions within the confines of a determined structure.

Within the context of the #KarostaWaterTowerProject the choreography was defined as a group of artists interacting with each other and the space of the Karosta Water Tower during July and August 2017. The fluid sculpture was described as the interventions this group of artists made in collaboration and within the red brick walls of the Karosta Water Tower.

A score, which all visitors were invited to perform, united the fluid sculpture with the choreography. It united those moving through the space now with all those who passed before and those who will pass after. A dance that only the Water Tower can witness the entirety of.
