GoGo Collective is an artist collective with Sarah Blood (United Kingdom/United States), Monique Pelser (South Africa), Mia Chaplin (South Africa), Martin Ålund (Sweden), Jonas Vansteenkiste (Belgium) and Elle van Uden (Australia), Torbjörn Johansson (Sweden) who live and practice in different countries.

GoGo Collective presents a visual conversation between the works of the artists in an exploration of relationships, collaborations, content and materiality.

GoGo Collective is a site specific process. At every new venue the form will change.

The first joint venture was the exhibition Showroom, August 14–18, 2018 at Galerie extérieure - Cité internationale des arts, Paris, France. In the context of the Cite des arts international we engaged with an old shop next to the river Seine. The window and the element shop inspired us to use the space and its language to start a profound dialogue between us as makers and the pieces on itself was a match. The added value of the performance piece of Monique Pelser and Jakob Warmenbol engaged the character of the exhibition in a reactive way.

The 2nd step in our dialogue is the exhibition Transition curated by Jan Van Woensel, May 2019 in Bogaerdenkapel, Cultur Centrum Brugge, Belgium. The venue is an old chapel in the center of the historic city of Brugge. The title of the exhibition is a reference to the transcendent history of this place. But also tells us about the position of these immersive international artist and the journey they are going trough in the collaboration, the group dialogue elevates each artist to a new and challenging level and make them react and interact with the context of the venue.

The 3rd step will be in Kummelholmen, curated by Jan Van Woensel, 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden.
