With Friendship, Oa4s continues a trajectory of inquiry into the mechanics of collaboration. They consider the form and function of friendship as such: as a symbiotic process and a political tactic of non-familial alliance. The exhibition will center around a short play starring a two-person camel, and set in a desert oasis. This will deploy portraiture and light sculpture to frame friendship’s volatile and kinetic character, as a stage for the artists to practice synchronicity.
