BA641 by ERGO Collective


BA641 is a flight number. This flight takes ERGO Collective to their first show that will be based not just in Athens. The piece BA641 is our first step towards going international, with members of the collective moving to different countries. The first stop is the U.K., and the show will take place simultaneously in Athens (Sub Rosa Space) and in London (Royal College of Art). The set up simulates a video call between two people. A dual site installation performed by Klaus Lali Shehaj, in Athens and Rob Bridger, in London. We witness their effort to bodily communicate, while they experience the limitations of the technological means, such as the space defined in front of the screen and essentially the impossibility of ever making eye contact. This performance wishes to explore how technology bridges such distances, but at the same time to expose the problematics of this form of digital communication.

ERGO Collective questions and elaborates on the borders between all Art disciplines, in terms of creative process and the experience of the viewer/ participant. ERGO was founded on the basis of questioning what it would be like without the existence of these borders and hence, it was formed as a platform aiming for their collapse. At the same time, we consider to be vital that each member of ERGO maintains their artistic identity, considering that artistic diversity is the key to our collective; each member is a different organ within the greater organism. Through our collaborative processes we allow for new concepts and perplex relations, as well as unpredictable outcomes.
