THE CLEAN NETWORK


TEAM


Celia Casey 

Describes herself as a ‘divergent mind that knows when to converge’ who spends her time developing metadisciplinary artworks and future education programs.

As a founder of projects like Plateau Gallery Berlin, Cluster e.V., Extreme Creative Disorder or The Acid Test Project she seeks not only to develop her own art pieces, but to create platforms where expression and creativity have no boundaries. This is in itself an art piece, in need of permanent research and analysis to one day become the desired future. She leads a holistic life, in constant creation of her one and multiple total work of art.

‘Anything is possible. Reality is ours, we create it’.


Letizia Trussi

Letizia Trussi

Is co-founder of Plateau Gallery Berlin and Cluster e.V.

She graduated in DAMS – Disciplines of Art, Music and Entertainment, and in the Communication and Education of Art. Based in Berlin, she works as a curator, project manager and cultural operator, organizing exhibitions, cultural events and workshops, as well as parties and festivals.

Years ago, she fell in love with Fuerteventura, where she more and more finds reasons and inspiration to create a stable connection between Berlin and the Island. She is also a singer – Lagoon – performing in an electronic down-tempo duo with GATS, inspired by tribal sounds and especially from Nature. That’s her biggest love!


Marie Klinke aka. Miss Moon

Marie Klinke

is a Berlin-based, multi-disciplinary artist, art director, curator, project manager, connecter and curious creator. She founded various cultural projects and collectives such as the Plateau Gallery Berlin & Gape – Berlins Experimental Lounge. In 2015 she graduated in Art Direction and co-founded Cluster e.V. in 2016.

Fuertevetura was for her a visually reseting experience. The visual overload of Berlin and its city live, influences her work and feeds her mind with inspiration. Simplicity allows deeper perception and clearer awareness. These natural cycles become healthy and tangible in her work. A stone desert can be fertile ground; concentrated, focused, on conscious creation. – www.mariemoon.de

PYUR

PYURHotflush has welcomed an exciting young artist, PYUR, along with her singular debut LP Epoch Sinus. Growing up in Munich, in and amongst the same fecund scene that spawned artists like the Zenker Brothers and Skee Mask, PYUR spent her younger years learning the guitar and singing before she discovered the electronic world’s endless scope for sound design. Endowed with innately strong synaesthesia and reared in a shamanic household, she tells how music “played the biggest role in my growth. It alone had the purpose to help me dissolve boundaries, discover the beauty of life’s mechanisms, create freely. It talked. Soon I felt like the music was making me, not the other way round.”

CLEAN CREATIONS

Andreco was born in Rome, works between Bologna and New York City as artist and scientist. Andreco is also an environmental engineer PhD specialize in sustainability, he did a Post. Doc researches on green technologies for urban sustainability collaborating with the School of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Bologna and the Columbia University of New York City. His artistic research is focused on the relation between humans and nature and between the built environment and the natural landscape. Since 2000 Andreco is researching on different topics as anatomy, environmental sustainability, urbanism, ecology and symbolism, on the base of this researches he is creating new symbols. Andreco uses many techniques to represent his art, from public installations to videos or wall paintings and drawings. Andreco worked for several international festivals, museums and galleries.

STATEMENT
In the climate change era the environment needs new symbols to withstand.We are in the century of the environmental crisis and my artwork is affected by it.My research is focused on the relation between humans and nature and between the built environment and the natural landscape.“Man is nature becoming conscious of itself ”(Elisée Reclus)

Since 2000 I’m constantly researching pushed by curiosity, finding connections between art and science, symbolism and environmental sustainability, anatomy and urbanism, bodies and cities, ecology and social justice, emotion and actions. I believe that multidisciplinary researches are needed. I support the idea that individual and collective freedom of thinking is a primary value. The objective of my research is to produce new visions, symbols and formulas, to make the invisible visible, showing the beauty of the hidden natural process as a contemporary alchemist that learns from the past.

METHODS
There isn’t just a method (I don’t follow a specific scheme for my work ) but the artwork production process is mostly site specific and influenced by the contest, the people that I meet and the environment. The artwork can be related to searching materials and natural elements, observing transformations and simplifying ideas in shapes. Some times I’m looking for a delicate balance, others times for a heavy impact. A common operation in my work is to transpose natural elements from the landscape to the built environment, changing the point of view, the perception and the conventional meaning of the objects, with the clear statement:
Nature as Art”.

CLEAN FREQUENCIES

Cashmere Radio is a not-for-profit community radio station based in Lichtenberg, Berlin. The ambition of the station is to preserve and further radio and broadcasting practices by playing with the plasticity and malleability of the medium. We do this by both honouring and challenging it’s inherent qualities: it is both a physical station open to the public and an online radio; it has regular shows, yet opens itself up to extended and one-off events; it features extended generative music performances and installations at the same time as working within radio’s typical durations. In short, it is an attempt to enhance and celebrate the performative, social and informative power of radio that we believe lies within the form itself.

ASSOCIATIONS


A collaboration between Clean Sounds and Cluster e.v.

Clean Sounds is socio-cultural association uniting artists, musicians, engineers and any other creative talents in the North of Fuerteventura. Together, we want to create a cultural movement based on cooperative behaviour. The organisation of creative music events is a main part of our mission. There, we can express and share our talents to inspire others.

Our unique events run only on sustainable energy sources such as solar energy. New applications of clean technology in event management will be developed and applied.

Benefits of events are invested in the not-for profit association. In this way we can stimulate environmental awareness and develop social projects.

Cluster e.V. aims at establishing a digital platform that connects artists, creative professionals, advocates, benefactors, and enthusiasts across the globe. At its philosophical core, Cluster is a network based on a rhizomatic structure.

Cluster maps art-related agencies, cultural associations, galleries, artist houses, and residency possibilities around the globe

with the intention of simplifying collaboration and interaction among these various actors. Such connections have the potential to help an artist or creative professional enter the marketplace, access residencies, and find general support, while also creating mutually beneficial opportunities for advocates and enthusiasts to gain exposure amongst artists they may not encounter otherwise.

Cluster is based on an open structure instead of a closed system. It works by establishing an experimental ground upon which its members can actively contribute in terms of growth and operation. It is, in essence, a form of permanent on-going research and a conceptual artwork.

Cluster affirms itself as project in a state of becoming. Its conceptual framework was imagined during the Plateau Gallery experiment – a Berliner Open Gallery for Multidisciplinary Contemporary Art.
