Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platform 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/at Ptarmigan during these years.
collaboration is an ongoing series of performances, that address the physical relationship between two artists, while exploring the correlation between, and potentials of:
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.
