Ok, now blow everything up in scale and add some years, your wildest 8th birthday party fantasy has become reality. Welcome to piñata party.

A human chain is a form of demonstration in which people link their arms as a show of political solidarity. It may also refer to people holding on to each other in series to reach precarious spots. or it may also refer to people walking shoulder-to-shoulder in the event of searching for missing persons in water or on land. Our “Human Chain” was a form of solidarity between the artists in the collective and an opportunity to navigate precarious descent into the cavity of karaoke at Mauerpark.

“Esprit de Corps” Tug of War, Mauerpark Photos

“Esprit de Corps” is a series of events to promote, encourage and motivate all ages to become physically active as a means to participate in Art. A gift to the people of Berlin by our temporary collective “E.T.”, comprised of seven contemporary multidisciplinary artists who united forces ‘to take over the art scene’ in Berlin for a short moment of time. As part of our schedule of activities of Month of Performance Art, “Tug of War” was held at Mauerpark. The game “Tug Of War” is an inquiry of balance. It is an activity that posits an air of playfulness despite the name with its explicit reference to war– the intent is to reconsider the game in a different context.

Redesigning the game, and distancing it from the traditional aspects, it presents a visual discrepancy that is further complicated by the repositioning of the teams in relationship to each other. Traditional movement is eliminated by the implementation of pivoting devices, and no longer do teams remain equidistant and rather will be standing facing their opponents.

“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.

Øh1Øm1ke, TJ Hospodar, and Michael Loverich (Bittertang) are three NYC-based artists from the collective participating in the Pierogi Party. For more information on “E.T.” exhibition read the press release.
