“We live in a moment of complex crisis which brings with it a series of social and living conditions which are troubling and turbulent, where prospects and hopes for the future are uncertain and unpromising. In this situation, many young people like us have been forced into a general exodus.”.

Toni and Irene respond to this situation with the project TO EAT / INSTRUCTIONS, since Toni lives in Berlin and Irene in Malla, Reykjavik and Brighton. The goal, then, is to make use of the spatial circumstances of our lives, to work through and with this distance, to study it in depth. We investigate and confront critically and actively this key issue of our generation. We are therefore determined to investigate, conclusively and rigorously, love and friendship at a distance, to question how people love and relate to each other when they are far distant and also when they are nearby, exploring the landscapes formed, which can be constructed and deconstructed in the intangible space which is the distance (whatever it is) separating us.

We understand collaboration not only as cooperative work, but as a living space to make friends, to investigate, and to build something capable of changing the habits of thought. A place for conceiving of and implementing new experiences and living situations, a place of possibility.

The project TO EAT / INSTRUCTIONS was developed with the Beca Ciutat de Vic a la Producció Artística 2013. Through action, archive , and theoretical and photographic project has materialized in the form of artist's book titled food and a photographic series called INSTRUCTIONS. Simultaneously, two video pieces produced by Irene alone in Iceland: Jerks and Game to Read. Both videos explore new ideas through the action of collaboration, communication and distance (which in this case is linguistic and cultural).
