Tempting Failure Festival – William "Bilwa" Costa & Jasmin Schaitl: collaboration: failure

  • 3 Nov 2014 — 8 Nov 2014

collaboration: failure is a week long series of site-relative performances and installations. Each performance addresses the physical relationship between two artists, as well as their relationship to a space. Using unstable materials, the performers focus on simultaneous, repetitive actions, that phase, oscillate, conjoin, and gradually alter a space. Abstract and without narrative, they leave the audience time to assess, interpret, and propose her/his own meaning, content and thoughts. The remnants of these performances are intentional, and remain as installations throughout the following day, allowing the unique possibility to experience what remains of a performance.


William “Bilwa” Costa is an artist who works in the performing, sound, and visual arts contexts. He works internationally, generating research, lab, and performance projects, actively cultivating opportunities for artists to work together on new interdisciplinary experiments. 

Jasmin Schaitl is a live, action-based artist with a visual arts background. She works site-relatively, creating installation environments, where the witnesses‘ perception of space and time is modified through her actions.
