The gallery reopens with a special collaborative work by Coila - Leah Enderstein and Nicola Van Straaten. The artists have developed a common research rooted in improvisation, music and dance together, and they will present their new work featuring performances and video installations specifically realized for the gallery’s space.
About the piece:
A four year old archive occupies an otherwise empty room, calling out to the present body. Two performers respond to the sounds and images that have been crafted from past moments of intimacy, spontaneity and shared creative practice.
About the artists:
South African artists Coila-Leah Enderstein and Nicola van Straaten have been working together for the past five years, living in close quarters in both Cape Town and Berlin. The two friends have backgrounds in music and dance, and their mutual interest in performance, improvisation and archives, fuels and sustains their collaborative investigations, under the moniker of "THIMK".
