aMás is a passage.From the mineral to the organic.From the tribe to the individual.From the singularity to the whole.
The new project by Doppelganger Collective is inspired by the notion of liminality, developed in 1909 by anthropologist Arnold Van Gennep and by the ethnologist Victor Turner in the 1960s. Liminality is one of the three phases present in all the rites of passage of primitive and modern societies. This intermediate state is marked by social and identity fluctuations, between a primary stage of separation and a final phase of aggregation to a new status or state.
For their project at Ausstellungsraum Klingental, Doppelganger Collective will be taking over the main exhibition hall with a new large-scale scenography made of painting, photography, video, sound, drawings and text, punctually activated by performative interventions by several of its members.
