We are the matches of the collision; we are the matches that fire the spark for a pure
smile revolution. We are the matches that match

A: I am supposed to be a musician,
K: I am supposed to be a ‘question mark’,

to enter the rhizome of K.&A. let's scroll to the right and dive by clicking
‘We were asked in a specialised construction store in Brooklyn, are you constructors?
In a way we are.
By diving into raw and defined material and extracting the essence we build the multiplicity of layers/ images/ vibrations and thoughts that oscillate around each single project. Our work is a collection of edifices.’ K&A

Κ&Α form a dazzling duo based in Geneva(CH). Mixing their different
backgrounds and their complex cultural roots they spread poetical & political concepts. Their mobile studio and stage fluctuates between variable combinations of latitudes and longitudes. Urban & rural territories, in which borders are alive, appearing and disappearing, magnetize their artistic practise. K&A create the tools to blurry the distance in between, to make the void full.

K: I am supposed to be a ‘question mark’, BUT & A: I am supposed to be a musician, BUT
A / K has a background in music / theatre; she is trained as percussionist / visual artist.
Last years she focuses on performative arts from a hybrid perspective, bringing the two
fields together in a star collision, as an invitation for people to connect.

Within K&A the single signature is killed. What stays is the space in between, a space build through hours of training, drawing, glitching, performing, trusting and diving together into unknown territories. By de-sponging & de-stealing each other K&A extract the matiére premiére that will be distilled again. Out of this continuous distillation wor(l)ds arise to invite/invade the public.

Concepts start simple: at the core.
K&A build projects & concepts that arise out of long periods of research. Torrent books, vagary images, deserting writings, performative actions, grinding sounds, poetical and socio-political contexts come together to create a complex philosophical environment in which the statement of each project is formed. The multiplicity of projects and their thorough statements create the cartography of their work.
