An exhibition at Darom gallery in Tel Aviv that was the result of a collaboration between lead artists Alex Schady and Hadas Kedar as well as the participation of a large group of non-artists.

Kedar and Schady have worked collaboratively over the last 8 years showing widely both nationally and internationally. Based respectively in London and Tel-Aviv they develop work through a series of emailed instructions. Their work contemplates the nature of collaboration and explores how to develop a practice together. As an extension of this they have begun working with groups to explore collective practice.

Lord of the Flies has been adapted for film twice (in 1963 by Peter Brook, and again in 1990 by Harry Hook). In this project we proposed to make five further adaptations of a key scene in the novel with five casts recruited directly and arbitrarily from the local community.

Lord of the Flies is an allegorical novel by Nobel Prize winning author William Golding. It lends itself to this project because it discusses how culture created by man fails, using as an example a group of British schoolboys arbitrarily thrown together by a plane crash on a deserted island. Their attempt to govern themselves has disastrous results. It is a dystopian picture of collaboration and community.

The exhibition explores what happens when a group of individuals, with very different personal experiences, tries to consider the same text. In our own collaborative practice we often have to interpret each other’s ideas and intentions when developing work, and it seemed logical to expand on this when working with a larger group. Each group was presented with an untitled script and asked to develop a set, props, music costumes etc for its production. The results were filmed within the gallery during the workshop sessions. All five groups were given the same script, however they were given free range to interpret the script as they saw fit. As with a musical score different themes and emotions can be explored whilst still playing the same notes (or reading the same words). Our aim was to incorporate participant’s ideas and personal experiences through their interpretations of the text.

Abstract

An exhibition at Darom gallery in Tel Aviv that was the result of a collaboration between lead artists Alex Schady and Hadas Kedar as well as the participation of a large group of non-artists.

Kedar and Schady have worked collaboratively over the last 8 years showing widely both nationally and internationally. Based respectively in London and Tel-Aviv they develop work through a series of emailed instructions. Their work contemplates the nature of collaboration and explores how to develop a practice together. As an extension of this they have begun working with groups to explore collective practice.

Lord of the Flies has been adapted for film twice (in 1963 by Peter Brook, and again in 1990 by Harry Hook). In this project we proposed to make five further adaptations of a key scene in the novel with five casts recruited directly and arbitrarily from the local community.

Lord of the Flies is an allegorical novel by Nobel Prize winning author William Golding. It lends itself to this project because it discusses how culture created by man fails, using as an example a group of British schoolboys arbitrarily thrown together by a plane crash on a deserted island. Their attempt to govern themselves has disastrous results. It is a dystopian picture of collaboration and community.

The exhibition explores what happens when a group of individuals, with very different personal experiences, tries to consider the same text. In our own collaborative practice we often have to interpret each other’s ideas and intentions when developing work, and it seemed logical to expand on this when working with a larger group. Each group was presented with an untitled script and asked to develop a set, props, music costumes etc for its production. The results were filmed within the gallery during the workshop sessions. All five groups were given the same script, however they were given free range to interpret the script as they saw fit. As with a musical score different themes and emotions can be explored whilst still playing the same notes (or reading the same words). Our aim was to incorporate participant’s ideas and personal experiences through their interpretations of the text.
