SUPERFLEX ” Every End is a New Beginning”

SUPERFLEX, film still Hunga Tonga, 2019, Commissioned by TBA21-Academy

1301PE announces a new online exhibition- SUPERFLEX Every End is a New Beginning.

These selection of works are one outcome of SUPERFLEX’s expedition to Hunga Tonga aboard the ship Dardanella in 2018 as part of a larger research project and three year fellowship, Deep Sea Minding, commissioned by TBA21-Academy under the programme The Current.

Founded in 1993 SUPERFLEX studio is today composed of members from very diverse backgrounds. As an expanding collective, SUPERFLEX facilitates and urges the collaboration of others, bringing participation to the extreme. For SUPERFLEX, the best idea might come from a fish.

In a span of 30 years SUPERFLEX made energy systems challenging the powers that be, paintings portraying a hallucinatory economy, toilets as structures of power, sculptures as fish penthouses, three-seater swings to celebrate collectivity, beverages to refresh the idea of self-organisation, lamps igniting the discussion of copyright and contracts to explore the possibilities of prohibition. Artworks emerged as open source beer, hypnosis sessions, plant nurseries and tapestries. Media has followed ideas.
