Our creations are creatures. They live a life of its own.
We are Csaba Molnár and Márcio Kerber Canabarro, and in the middle of February 2015, we decided to create, and work, together. Combining our interests in performance art and visual culture, we designed, sewed, crafted, researched, wrote, choreographed, performed and financed - 'Tropical Escape Nø1': A self-organized-creative-burst-challenge; a study of filthy dreams, connecting exoticism and the labour involved in pleasure and fantasy, with personal and historical references.
The initial stimulus for the project, was the simple desire to explore materials together. We didn't bother ourselves with funding applications - as the aim was just spend time together, (we still discuss this issue, and sometimes it feels like a bold and rebellious decision, an attempt at resistance: to free ourselves from a pre-established contract of ideas to see what would come from nothing; sometimes sounds like suicide) and spent whatever spare time we had in the studio together.
As a result of this time and with the help of enthusiastic friends we created a 55 min piece, and generated a diverse and dizzying series of array of avenues and ideas to explore and research.
AND NOW, WE WANT MORE! our experience together has instilled a desire to develop our work - to push our ideas further and keep exploring together!
The aim of our projects is not share information but pour it, sweat it out and show it, and through dialogue, try to build knowledge and alternative ways to exist: politically, sexually, economically and artistically. (utopia?)
Taking flacid stuff and making it
We want to blow up our minds all around, constructing worlds & things we wish to see.We want to blow your mind, and inspire a desire to invest on alternatives for Normal, for living, for relating to people and for understanding. Go out and bake your own Carrot Cake!
-1/2 cup of oil (any oil, works good with coconut oil, and We put a bit less)
-3 medium carrots cut in cubes (go more carroty, we put up to 5 in times )
-2 cups of sugar (we also don’t put fully two)
-2 1/2 cups of flour
-1 little pack or 1 table spoon of Baking powder
In the blender mix the carrots, oil, eggs and sugar. After bit by bit add the flour sifting it with the backing powder. Any extra like raisins or nuts, add after finishing using the blender. Put the doe at a pre heat oven (180 degrees) for around 35 min, or until when jabbing a toothpick, it will get out dry. (at home takes 45 min). Than is just be creative with the topping, mascarpone with lemon, coconut and sugar (the cake needs to be kept cold then), or melted chocolate, marzipan…
