THE CHANGES are interested in seeing the world from different angles, and all at the same time. This will be their first chance to see things upside-down, but the right-way-around, in Australia.
THE CHANGES is a DIY 'collage' project consisting an aesthetic team of 'popular culture' creatives brought together to form the idea of a visual "band". The members live in different countries, from different age groups and different subcultures. What they share is a love for creating creativity, and a love of (sub)culture. All four members share a thirst for and knowledge of 'pop', interested in groups including the Situationists, Futurists and Dadaists, through to the 60's/70's/80's 'pop' cultures of art and music, to the 'underground' and mainstream cultures of today. This thinking also crosses into the realms of sci-fi, 'kraut', punk and early graffiti, taking from and giving to the cultures that surround them.
THE CHANGES describes itself as multi-faceted dance/art troupe, ever changing and ever evolving. CHANGES fans (and new recruits) can expect multimedia brought by multi-faceted imaginations. The boundaries of medium have not been set, but they don't care. THE CHANGES work in mysterious ways, and through many media. Each show they make is different. Through mediation and divination they hope to present a world that hasn't existed before. There may be performance. There may be shadow dance, or meditation, or a drum workshop. There will probably be aesthetics involved.
Through the work of many hands, and at least three brains between the four, plus the inclusion of a rare brain they found in a 'natural history moment' in London - Molto Bene, (Ben Sansbury), THE CHANGES 'Italiens' Tour Diary/Memento shows THE CHANGES in their element- Pot, Pizza and Interplanetary Music. Will The Changes stick to the element of PPIM? POT- yes, Pizza- yes, Interplanetary Music -YES! And in ways never seen before! There may be other P's thrown in too: Pianos, Poodles, Psychoanalysis, Poo, Prehistoric times...
On the CHANGES horizon are further European shows, at V1 and MU galleries in Copenhagen and Eindhoven, leading to THE CHANGES 'Australiens' tour. Are these shows tied in with the Australian exhibition?
No, but yes. They're all CHANGES shows, but each one is in a different place and a different time... so different things will happen.
