In Cahoots (Synergy)
In Cahoots suggests a secretive exploit, a little naughty or conspiratorial sharing resulting in (Synergy)- an effect resulting from actions within the process and spirit of combination, where, to quote Aristotle, “The whole is
greater than the sum of its parts”. This means, qualities or characteristics that are not present without combination / amalgamation and all other possible variants can manifest. Art possibilities are heightened. Unpredictable thoughts expound. Territory is transgressed. Serendipity occurs through this collaborative effort.
In Cahoots (Synergy) the show is conceived as an experiment of sorts in artistic collaboration. While some artistic endeavors often involve collaborative interactions, for example jazz musicians frequently collaborate in multiple groupings which thrive on the different interactions; visual arts for the most part is a solo act with the lone artist working away in the seclusion of the studio. This show is an opportunity for artists to work in a manner they may not be accustomed to and to experience something of the magical interplay of jazz musicians.
