Occam’s Razor: Collective performance with C/P/S

C / P / S, led by artist Tarek Atoui, is a post-master course
within the research programme of Kungl. Konsthögskolan/
Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. The approach of C / P / S
stems from Atoui’s work with music, instruments and performance. Together the group think and work around these
notions and their interconnections; experimental instruments
and instrument making become the starting point for creating
encounters with diverse audiences and engaging with the
reality and musicality of a place.
C / P / S is Alan Affichard, Ami Kohara, Igor Porte, Jeremiah Runnels,
Johanna Mårtensson, Julia Giertz and Rossana Mercado-Rojas, all
professional practitioners from areas such as music, visual arts, art history
and performing arts.

C / P / S open studio session + bar Platform has since autumn 2018 hosted Kungl. Konsthögskolan/ Royal Institute of Art and functioned as an external studio for C / P / S. A creative place for research, meetings and discussions with guests and professionals from different fields as well as a space for developing new work togeth- er. The first part of Occam’s Razor is an intimate open studio session + bar at Platform with various contributions from the C / P / S members.

Eric Ericsonhallen C / P / S x LUMEN PROJECT
This special collaboration between LUMEN PROJECT and C / P / S will generate an atmospheric experience through time and space at Eric Ericsonhallen. It is an evening where individual and collective works of sound, performance, and video by the C / P / S members are interlinked and together activate different architectur- al aspects of the church and immerse its visitors.

Rossana Mercado-Rojas explores the transitions of former religious buildings into secular spaces for cultural activation. Through exploration with different media, Mercado-Rojas seeks to recall notions such as religion, power, history, nation, and culture.

Workshop at k.ö.k (Kvinnor önskar kollektivitet – Women Desire Collectivity)- Tensta Hjulsta / Estocolmo

16 May 16, 10-13 Rossana Mercado-Rojas will do a workshop at k.ö.k where we examine how different form of images and sounds (rhythms, music and songs) make us feel present, loud and strong in difficult times. Rossana will also present actions she has done earlier in her practice and with the collective Hysterix in Peru, and how they used music and noise as part of the actions. We will share audio and video and share our own stories. http://kvinnocentertensta-hjulsta.org/kok/en/event/hysteria/

Rossana Mercado-Rojas is an artist, curator and one of the initiators of the collective Hysterix.

Hysterix is a female artist collective in Peru that uses artistic methods to influence public and private places. Hysterix wants to question how we divide the world, create inequality, and pay tribute to rational logic.

Hysterix encourages hysteria.

k.ö.k (Kvinnor önskar kollektivitet – Women Desire Collectivity) is a feminist platform that experiments with ways to build a feminist institution from the existing experiences, location and context of the community of The Women’s Centre in Tensta Hjulsta. http://kvinnocentertensta-hjulsta.org/en/startsida/
