Illimine is an international collective of multimedia artists, performers and academics, founded in 2013. Our aim is the practice of a transdisciplinary dialogue around gesture, duration, expanded poetry, narrative, and site-specific art.
Illimine is fluid and works as a concertina with smaller or larger clusters of artists, academics, and practitioners forming around particular themes. Our way of working is entirely non-hierarchical, with ownership of intellectual and artistic property shared between all contributors to the process of thinking/doing. Performers and project managers, directors of photography and babysitters, chefs and cooks, in their ever-changing roles, share the same importance. This on-going, daily practice is our ‘Art’ and the temporary results of this practice constitute our various performances, installations, public actions and objects.
