Rough. Together.

Mean Time Between Failures duet X Temporary Artists Collective

Rough. Together. is a multidisciplinary live art event curated and facilitated by Mean Time Between Failures duet, consisting of artist-organizer Dash Che and artist Suvi Tuominen. The participating artists are Ignacio Pérez Pérez, Amanda Hunt, and Mathilda Kauppila. 

Event Description:

Three artists that form the Temporary Artists Collective, which will exist and work together for two full days before showing their collective work, are asked to explore their artmaking relationship to the world’s ongoing failures, brutality, ambivalences, and imperfections. The artists are invited to stay with the thought that art does something else than activism, it cannot fix the world in this sense  – the world remains broken. Still, within this breakage art changes the world as we meet each other to play, grieve, get angry, love, and also make art. Thus, the Collective is asked to ”wade into the swamp, get intimate with discomfort, and develop an appetite for nuance” in this project (from ”The Art of Cruelty: The Reckoning” by Maggie Nelson, 2011).

While there is a definite value in taking refuge in softness and safety in the time of the disastrous collapse of our surroundings, we would like to take a detour from these qualities as the focal points of collaborative artmaking. We ask, how can the group of artists that temporarily came together meet each other’s both soft and rough edges by bypassing social politeness, entering a new structure, and staying with an unknown outcome? Is appreciation of our differences, similarities, and complexities enough to make an ethical space for collaboration? Within this framing premise, the theme and content of the artistic work stay open and will develop through artistic collaboration.
