Two or three years ago and I started playing together as a duo. We brought viola da gamba and electric bass together and improvised. After a hiatus we started thinking of working together again but this time with a focus on connecting our scraps of explorations in video, audio, performance and internet bullshit.We called ourselves [Insert Name Here] because of the modular nature of this collaboration.T
TAKE CARE is a production in coproduction with and was supposed to be performed live at the Sint-Janshospitaal in Brugge
during KAAP's Mind The Artist series. Because of COVID-19 it turned into a video work which eventually was the right format for how we wanted to approach the concept.
This work merges the pandemic situation with the "keep on going" - attitude expected from and executed by artists in a frame of ASMR treatment and shock treatment.
The result is a 1h40min movie consisting of 4 parts that can be watched in any order.
