Bambi Woods function like a radio that never announces its programme in advance. Initiated in 2019 and gathering contributions from over fifty voices, Bambi Woods are a collective enunciation springing from the anonymity of murmur, a molecular vibration infiltrating processes of individuation while encrypting the status of the author. Like a balaclava-covered DJ sticking black tape on their records’ labels, B.W. distribute chains of reactions and affects that are no longer based on recognition and identification.
Bambi Woods’ next intervention will take place across two mirroring spaces, ERGO Collective and Space 52, both located in Athens. Combining curating, art making, poetry and performance, Bambi Woods Presents is an assemblage of ready-mades, radio stations, internet portals, photographic slides and not-yet-determined works of art that will attempt to recode architectonic forms of authorship through delegated chains of commands and mechanical processes. Throughout the project, B.W. will shape-shift into constellations of nameless entities, inviting the audience to follow a story without script in which power play, meaning production and the ideological figure of the ‘present author’ dissolve into a cadavre exquis of situations. Less a manipulation of the real than a simulated reality, Bambi Woods Presents deals with the phantom of wording and unfolds like a game of which the only rule is to be a game without rules.
Supported by ΝΕΟΝ Organization for Culture and Development and takes place as part of ERGO Collective’s curatorial programme for 2021.
