In 2014, based on friendship and overlapping curiosities in structures of care and forms of community-building, Marei Löllmann started working together with Ulrike Bernard as artist duo Polyphrenic Creatures. In diverse and interdisciplinary contexts, they initiate narrative and auditory installations, sound collages and performative gestures that foster dialogue and listening as a social space. Since 2018, they have increasingly turned our attention to collective processes of knowledge production based on lived experiences. In dialogical formats, flexible frameworks are developed, within which the knowledge of narrators and listeners, performers and the audience meets and interconnects in non-hierarchical relationships. The dissolution of language, processes of overwriting, and the reconnection of different narrative strands are important elements of our projects. Dialogues and situations are woven into acoustic fabrics and tested as dynamic forms of action.
