Production Details / Press Releases
When I think about the word creativity I immediately stop being creative. I would like to accept creativity as a fact.
In a habitat of superabundance and countless possibilities, we force ourselves into a state of hyper-creativity. We yield to a physicality of open links, wandering about and through fragments of texts, movements, upset objects and flickering cultural signposts. This work emerged from our common need to grasp the role of creativity in our artistic work and to relocate ourselves in relation to it. From the economic sphere to the personal sphere, contemporary Western society increasingly demands everyone ‘be creative.’ We find that as artists, we are forced into a state of constant production of creativity in order to produce ever more of it. Does this marathon of activating creativity actually create creativity? This is a starting point for an adventurous voyage into the ambiguous nature of creative processes. We offer you an unfinished analysis of creativity.
