NUART PRESENTS THE CULT OF RAMMELLZEE
The Cult of Rammellzee for Nuart from NUART on Vimeo.
Through the mediums of graffiti, breakdancing, skateboarding and music the Cult of Rammellzee (UK) devised a public performance combining visual art, sound and choreography with 60 UKM participants over three days. The project was co-curated by Cedar Lewisohn, the man behind Tate Modern’s ground-breaking ‘Street Art’ exhibition in 2008.
The Cult of Rammellzee is a performance art collective that has a track record of working on commissions for major cultural institutions. Both The Barbican and the Saatchi Gallery in London have invited them to perform their peculiar mixture of chanting, spray-painting and breakdancing in their spaces. Their trademark costumes, assembled from plastic odds and ends with a splash of hi-vis, make them look like psychedelic Transformers, with exotic fabrics adding an ethno-futurist twist. They work in honour of the graffiti/performance artist Rammellzee who died in 2010.
