Ptarmigan operated in Tallinn from 2011-2014. This website exists as an archive of its activities during this time. We no longer maintain any presence in Tallinn, but some people involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary in Helsinki.
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.
