apap production studio Berlin: Time to Meet - Raquel André “Collection of Artists“
"Time to Meet" is a series of open rehearsals and discussions, a meeting place for exchange and feedback on artistic processes, this time with Raquel André.
Collection of Artists is the third movement of the Collection of People. Is it possible to access an artist through learning a moment of his/her creation? Can one access their story? Raquel uses her own body as an archive, learning and keeping the arts of others so she can tell their stories. She creates a collection that deals with each artist, their different practices, disciplines, conceptual perspectives and work tools. In the collection, one also finds personal desires, thoughts and ways of being and their relationship with their artistic practices and biographies. By collecting artists, Raquel navigates frontiers of reality and fiction, fantasy and possibility, daily life and artistic life, seeking to collect the ephemeral, and transform it into something concrete and palpable, through an artistic and poetic medium. In 2018 and 2019, Raquel André collects artists in partnership with various institutions in various cities around the world: Bergen, Salzburg, Faro, Warsaw, Cincinnati, New York, Loulé, Berlin, Orléans, Porto, Montemor-o-Novo and Lisbon.
