Just here 2 network is a collaborative piece with Alex as artist and curator, and movement practitioner Hanna Junti. It is the result of a 9-month research residency at STL, Estonia.

An installation and performance piece on communication, connections, disruptions.

The research started with investigating cognitive dissonance and cultural identities in flux, then it travelled through linguistics, anthropology, lingered on an obsession with the mouth and ended on microbiology and communication systems. Finally, we zoom in on the topic of communication at cellular level within the body.

What does it mean to communicate today when you're in between cultures, places and practices (a little alien, a bby other)? We came to the conclusion that communication happens everywhere just as it does within the body; take for example the gut, it has lots of different flora and bacteria and no monocultures, in short different alien bodies communicate (cooperate, fight, negotiate, connect, disconnect) together to create a functioning ecosystem (and so do we).

9 month residency at Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava, Estonia. With installation and showing on the 31st May 2019.
