Christian Nerf (Cape Town, SA)

Expert Witness

Expert Witness is a project by Christian Nerf and Josh Ginsburg which involves two separate artists projects and one collaborative project.

  1. To aggregate overlapping coordinates of two ongoing and parallel projects, Art can Strengthen Your Lungs (Josh Ginsburg) and The thing in breathing (Christian Nerf). Both Art can Strengthen Your Lungs and The Thing in Breathing orbit about the relationship between art and its capacity to affect ones physicality in the world: for art to function as equipment. Engagements to this effect,explored the nuances of our respective approaches, previous experiments and projects and thoughts for new tools, instructions and forms.
  2. To explore the proposition of working with staged in opposition to collaboration. To what extent could we maintain independence and autonomy of thought and labor and yet simultaneously invest deeply in a common and shared outcome?
  3. To investigate the term expert, perusing a wider definition of this status than normally ascribed and with a special emphasis on the sounds that contribute to an expert capacity (i.e. the sound to the bus driver of the rear door not closing properly). As such, audio constituted a key node of the investigation.
