Splinterfields 1/4: Default: Mobile studio for artists

The first encounter in the series of Splinterfields is organised by nadine, an artistic organisation that moves within constantly changing artistic practices through continuous questioning of itself. nadine encourages alternative research formats for artists and collectives to work with. Currently these formats have been evolving into projects about mobility and performance, workshops for artists, site-specific residencies and public presentations.

Default is a straight line, a fold in a map of Europe. The fold determines the direction and defines the journey of discovery for several pioneering bikers, who are driven by sun, wind and muscles. The artistic caravan explores and accentuates a new culture of travelling with nomadic technologies. Artists, designers, technologists and collectors are invited to pursue their artistic practice whilst travelling by bike through Europe from the north of Ireland to the south of Portugal.
