Shouth: The Overture, Fuck Identity, South, Whitey On Venus, and The Overture by Nastivicious, 2015
4 videos, loop; print
Courtesy of the artists. Whitey On Venus is produced in collaboration with GIBCA.
Nastivicious takes to Sweden four statements of limited, ignorant, and transparent twenty-first-century power. These videos were opportunities the artists took to express that they are part of this world, and that despite its contradictory beauty they want to be the part that cares about leaving it better than we found it. Nastivicious could declare that appropriation, remix culture, reinterpretation, and contamination of excessive information are what unify this series of videos; in reality, they never spoke about those things. They did speak a lot about food, music, and the fact that they would love to be about Love. Pink love. Pink Punk Love, tough love. The artists spoke about clichés, popular wisdom, bad people, and how they sleep at night – they did get to the conclusion that they sleep horizontally. They believe we can, and will, live better tomorrow... Starting today.
