Design, art, style, culture, food and brilliant stupidity.
The Phoenix Atlas is an Internet-based art collective, run by Dutch curator/art critic Okke De Groot, Brazilian artist Ana Laura Ferreira and Croatian art writer/publisher Jan Karan.
The project focuses on writing as a practice between fiction, art criticism and curatorial activity. Most of the texts published are conceived as drafts, translations, comments or fictionalizations of non-existent shows, although they feature real artists and real artworks. Otherwise, pre-existing press releases and artworks are altered, as a form of subtle and ambiguous criticism.
In order to rearrange stories and thoughts found material is often used, like quotes, film scripts and abstracts from articles or publications.
