Joakim Stampe & Chuyia Chia : from the other shore of the Baltic

It’s merely a month left till CREATurE Live Art! Let us introduce you to a couple of Swedish performers Joakim Stampe and Chuyia Chia. They’ve pretty much travelled the whole world in these last several years, creating astonishing work in the streets and galleries, parks and pavements in near and far places – setting foot pretty much everywhere in Europe, and extending their horizons to other continents.

Joakim Stampe has visited Kaunas and performed in CREATurE Live Art 2013, in the crumbling halls of former shoe factory, then used as an exhibition and studio space, called Fluxus Ministerija. He has also given a workshop in the streets of the old town, introducing fellow artists and unaware citizens to water-painting in water, and, eventually, beer. Those curious are invited to check the verity of this fact in the photo gallery here.

We’ve been following the work of Chuyia Chia for quite a while, mesmerized by her intense works, engaged and engaging, reflecting the state of the world and silently raising awareness of those participating.

Read more about both of the performance artists and the concept they’re working around for their performance in CREATurE here.

Joakim Stampe’s and Chuyia Chia’s participaton in the festival has been made possible with the generous support of the Kulturkontakt Nord Mobility Fund.
