An investigation into the language of desire for community and the displacement of this language into various modes of representation a and communication. The text derives from “requests” for community found and appropriated from the International Directory for Intentional Communities website. 2009, Video duration 4’18  selected for the CameraVideo screening program of Fondazione March, Padua, I.

For the occasion of Low Lives 4 the International Festival of live streaming performance curated by Jorge Rojas and transmitted in various locations around the world, the artists broadcast from a tent in the depths of their studio a series of calls for the formation of intentional communities.The calls were culled in real time from the online Directory of Intentional Communities.

The exploration of the individual’s language of desire for community took also the form of posters in the public space. Text drawn from the International directory for Intentional Communities, printed and hanged throughout Cali, Colombia and Venice, Italy. The text reads: “I’m looking for those who are looking for me/ I dream of a very simple living, polyamorous, raw vegan tribe/ A radically new culture/ Building close, warm, egalitarian, fair and overt relationships.”

Il progetto New Natives é un’investigazione nel desiderio di uno stile di vita alternativo e nel dislocamento del suo linguaggio attraverso varie modalitá di rappresentazione e comunicazione.
Il processo é iniziato in relazione ad alcune “richieste per formare una comunitá” trovate sul sito web dell’Elenco per le Comunitá Autogestite Internazionali e si articola attraverso vari interventi performativi in video.
