About Slow Art Collective
Slow Art Collective is an artistic collective that focuses on creative practices and ethics relating to environmental sustainability, material ethics, DIY culture and collaboration. As an interdisciplinary group of artists, Slow Art Collective is interested in process-driven practices where the focus is on the act of making. Slow art is about slow exchanges of value rather than the fast, monetary exchange of value. It is about the slow absorption of culture through community links by creating something together and blurring the boundary between the artists and the viewer. It is a sustainable arts practise, not an extreme solution; a reasonable alternative to deal with real problems in contemporary art practice. Collaboration is intrinsic to all facets of their work. Since 2009 Slow Art Collective have undertaken a range of projects that use the process of collecting to address the crossovers between artistic practice, creative sustainability and individual responsibility. Slow Art Collective is currently helmed by Chaco Kato and Dylan Martorell, who invite collaborators to join them for individual projects.
