Künstlerinfo: Rosa Crvx
Since 1984 the complex art project from Rouen has created its own cosmos in which ecclesiastical and rock music are combined with performing arts and apocalyptic artworks. Sub-cultural and artistic elements have been skilfully linked and thus enabled the project to stand its ground both in the Gothic underground and on big artistic installations and music festivals. This success can undoubtedly be traced back to the self image of the band: you have to see the self-made chime pendular in order to believe it. Furthermore body techniques of archaic societies play an integral part for ROSA CRVX: soil, dust, organic substances and nudity are inherent parts of the stage shows. The sophisticated metal games of band leader Olivier Tarabo tie in with a kind of post-industrial primitivism as represented by the German artist Flatz.
