REBECCA STEPHANIE & ISFRID ANGARD SILJEHAUG




De Service Garage presents Isfrid Angard Siljehaug and Rebecca Stephany — Double Solo/Single Duo. Angard Siljehaug and Stephany have been collaborating on performance and video projects since 2009. The exhibition will bring together works from their individual and collaborative practice.
The subtitle of the exhibition can be looked at as a metaphor for the practise of Isfrid Angard Siljehaug and Rebecca Stephany: having a verse from 'When Two Become One' (Spice Girls) processed by web application Dada Poetry Generator, the syntax is suspended. This intervention causes an atmosphere where established logics and common truths are put into question.
Double Solo/Single Duo consists of a wall drawing by Angard Siljehaug, objects and a drawing by Stephany, an overview of their collaborative video works and a performance during the opening with new work especially made for this occasion.











Isfrid Angard Siljehaug (º1986, Norway) is doing her MA in Artistic Research at the Royal Academy in The Hague and Rebecca Stephany (º1980, Germany) is currently artist in residence at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam.
