Camel Colective

– Casa Wabi 2018

Proyecto Comunitario

El Traje Nuevo Del Rey – Casa Wabi
The project’s goal was for Camel Collective to join the functions of the Mobile Library and work with children. Dynamics were carried out around the story “The King’s new suit.” Children from 1st to 3rd year were asked to draw a magical costume with the powers they would like to have. The older children were asked to reinterpret the story and write a new ending. The final idea is to have two videos (one of the drawings and another with new texts) that show the work of children and can be screened at the Casa Wabi’s movie theater.

Anthony Graves and Carla Herrera-Prats have worked together as Camel Collective since 2010. Their works combine performance, video, sculpture, and photography in order to think through the contradictions of contemporary labor, and the myths of cultural production, bringing together collaborators from a variety of professions. Their practice is motivated by research into marginal histories and critical pedagogies, learning from theater and philosophy.
Camel Collective has exhibited and performed works at museums and exhibitions including: La distancia de Pontresina a Zermatt es la misma que de Zermatt a Pontresina, Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo, MUAC, Mexico City (2017), Something Other Than What You Are, REDCAT, Los Angeles (2016); The Second World Congress of Free Artists, Casa del Lago, Mexico City (2013); Una obra para dos pinturas presented at the Trienal Poli/Gráfica of San Juan, Puerto Rico (2012); A Facility Based on Change, Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, MassMoCA, New England (2011) and Howls for Bologna, Overgaden Institut for Samtidskunst, Copenhagen (2010). Their work has also been shown at Artists Space, Art in General, Exit Art, in New York and Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, in Mexico City.
