Villa Incognito Performances (2015)

As part of their exhibition Villa Incognito Deli Projects was presenting a program of live performance and music at the 13 November opening with Bastien Hippocrate and Unnur Andrea Einarsdóttir, continuing at the After-Party at Schwarze Erle with Prince Heka (Unnur Andrea Einarsdóttir), Suxession (Jari Antti) with Andrea Tortosa Vidal and Harvey Rushmore and the Octopus. Best-known as the undisputed frontman of alternative rockband Navel, Jari Antti – currently working in Berlin – is constantly searching for new, experimental formats. Suxession is one such project, and anything is possible. Only performed three times previously, this crude mash-up of vocals, guitar and live beats results in a sound somewhere between a lost singer-songwriter and an entire band. As if to mitigate his fear of the transitory nature of this puzzling work, Antti draws with black paint on white as he plays, and Spanish dancer Andrea Tortosa Vidal joins him on stage from her ballet rehearsals at Theater Basel. Late night, spontaneous, open-minded. Harvey Rushmore and the Octopus is yet another project resulting from the band Navel. Octopus categories their sweaty galactic jams alternately as psychedelic massacre pop or retro shoe-gaze garage space blues. However you want to interpret them, Harvey Rushmore and the Octopus are lo-fi and real, so we love to save the last dance for them. For Villa Incognito they contribute site-specific video-colla- ge visuals from homemade Villa Renata footage, and other videos. This last makes them the perfect match for Deli Project’s after-party program.
