Alexandra do Carmo in collaboration with Alison Knowles

is a video work that investigates collaborative production in art. The starting point came from Alison Knowles’ piece Bread and Water, where the two elements of the title are paralleled through images of bread that double as specific topographical profiles of rivers. For Roggenbrot, the artists baked bread together in upstate New York at Alison Knowles’ studio. The journey along the Hudson river between both artists is energised by a series of resonances -- the site of the practice is extended to other domains such as the river and the place of living.

In this video, two narratives are interwoven - a static framed situation inside the studio where the artists are discussing the project and by opposition, the actual making in an outside dynamic context where the practice becomes richer.
