Back Stages
We are presenting a visual manifest of the artistic and cultural creation process by emphasizing
values placed on the production and handling of artistic goods. Our manifest takes place in local,
global and digital contexts. We are fascinated by systems of manufacture for art and culture
as opposed to the romantic notion of the artist labouring in solitude within their studio. Here,
places and objects compose and materialize cultural identity. Artistic meaning is not only found
in a finished artwork. From planning to execution, it is embodied in every stage of the fabrication
process. These works investigate how cultural traditions can be expressed in the different
processes of making, collecting and preserving.
