Ptarmigan is no longer operating in Helsinki.

Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platfom until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as Ptarmigan during these years.

Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.

Collaboration 14 img
collaboration #14
02 August, 2014 00:00 19:00 - 20:00
Featuring artist: Jasmin Schaitl and William "Bilwa" Costa

collaboration is an ongoing series of performances, that address the physical relationship between two artists, while exploring the correlation between, and potentials of: 

  • proximity – distance, transformation – alteration, 
  • tempo – stillness, duration – ephemerality, 
  • and duality – unison.

Using limited materials, each performance focuses on simultaneous actions, and the point where these actions phase, oscillate, and/or conjoin. These actions are repetitive, consistent, clear, precise, thorough and definite. Without narrative, they leave the audience time to assess the actions and interpret or propose her/his own meaning, content and thoughts.

The remnants of these performances are intentional, and remain as visual art installations.

collaboration #14 is a new performance, to be developed by the duo while in residency in Tartu. The duration is one hour.

collaboration #14 is supported by Bundeskanzleramt Österreich and the Austrian Embassy Tallinn.
