- Or Call This Art
Typographic and sculptural logo and identity for the temporary eight-headed artists collective called OCTA.
After a period in which almost all exhibitions were postponed or canceled and artists were forced to work alone, the visual artists of OCTA are eagerly awaiting collaborations. There does not seem to be a better time than now to opt for a collaboration that examines the exact subject of the collaboration itself. The collective investigates the artistic possibilities that arise when artists who create three-dimensional work develop their works side by side in one space. The individual makers will bring their own style and preparatory work, but will enter their temporary studio in Maakhaven with the intention of responding to the works around them. It will be an investigation into the tension between individuality and communality, fragmentation and coherence, action and reaction, distance and proximity.
With work by Leslie Nagel, Bas de Boer, Kevin Bauer, Evelien Gransjean, Bas Ruis, Emilio Timp, Felipe van Laar and Bart Schalekamp.
