As a duo varialambo (Varia Sjöström, visual artist, musician and performer Hatz Lambo, visual artist, poet and performer) we formed in Berlin in 2018. 2019 we moved to Helsinki and were invited to the Festival Today Is Our Tomorrow. 2020 we have been invited to curate and facilitate an 8 months long Performance LAB program at Museum of Impossible Forms Helsinki and the Festival NOTHING TO LOSE. Last August we unveiled The Chainsaw Man, an immersive performance made for an online livestream format and supported by the KONE home residency grant. In September 2020 we launched our art and poetry book The Itching Triangle at PUBLICS, Helsinki. 2021 we will exhibit our new work Narrating WAR / HABITAT 1 in collaboration with Ali Akbar Mehta, and open Partners in Crime I-X our solo exhibition at Myymälä2 Helsinki.
„We like the idea of social fantasy. We like the state of over exhaustion and lasting plays. The repetition of given narratives is one of the last dinosaurs on earth. It’s time to bury it with dignity but fast.“
