“E.T.” + “Esprit De Corps” Opening Ceremony

"E.T."

Okazi Gallery Berlin and Lucky Gallery NYC invite you for the opening of our art exhibition of “E.T.” and the Opening Ceremony for “Esprit De Corps”.

“E.T.” is a temporary artist collective, comprised of seven artists who have united forces ‘to take over the art scene’ in Berlin for a short moment of time. “E.T.” will be working on site at Okazi Gallery and will be also holding events on behalf of Month of Performance Art, in Berlin.

The root of their collaboration will be in the method of the ‘exquisite corpse’, a technique invented by the Surrealists in the early 1900’s, which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to the composition in a sequence either by following a rule or by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person contributed. “E.T.” uses this process as the starting point for their collaboration, which began several months before arrival to Berlin.

“E.T.” is also a participant of Month of Performance Art –Berlin, a month-long platform dedicated to highlighting, promoting and interconnecting the wealth and diversity of independent, contemporary and experimental performance art practices thriving in Berlin. E.T. is offering “Esprit De Corps”, a series of events to promote, encourage and motivate all ages to become physically active as a means to participate in Art.

The members of “E.T”. are Øh1Øm1ke (NYC), Yannis Angelopoulos (Berlin), Laura Arena (NYC), Bittertang (NYC and Guadalajara), Stephanie Homa (London), TJ Hospodar (NYC), and Tina Schott (Antwerp).

Opening Ceremony of “Esprit de Corps” will commence at 7pm on May 18th at Okazi Gallery. All the people of Berlin are encouraged to attend and participate. The opening ceremony will include various performances and programs will be handed out listing “Esprit De Corps” events happening at various times throughout Berlin.
