NEVERCREW

NEVERCREW is a swiss based street artists duo composed by Christian Rebecchi & Pablo Togni. They work together since 1996.

In the recent years NEVERCREW undertook a research that doesn’t aim at forcedly channeling reflections in a precise stylistic and formal way, but rather to find a new language that allows to follow them, deepen them and share them; and especially that it’s also a practical and visible demonstration of that. Working together since 1996, Christian Rebecchi & Pablo Togni developed the issue of the confrontation (between two persons, between ideas, between forces) and at the same time, interacting in the public space, they extended this confrontation outside in a direct way, making this perennial dual “discussion” one of the hubs of their work.  From this take shape what they call “sections” and “living structures.”

To do so, they mainly create mechanisms, intended both for their purely mechanical or more figurative sense: working structures made of elements connected one to each other and articulated, structures that recall artificial machinery made by man (with or without a use) as well as the physical essence of nature, social relationships and interactions in general.
Even in the method of creation of these mechanisms the dominant element is the relationship between the parties, that they use as the same means for the realization. There’s for NEVERCREW an approach based on selection and composition, on the defining of links between existing elements and parts designed specifically as needed. They choose to mix conponents from different fields, sometimes almost anonymous and sometimes perfectly recognizable to attract attention and create more immediate connections.
In this process becomes important also the time component, considering that all the mechanical objects that they prepare gradually accumulate and become part of an archive, a sort of box of mechanics colors where to choose from, becoming a means to create other structures in a constant evolutions Similar to an alphabet that acquires new letters as new words and new thoughts require it, thus increasingly making new sentences and a new communication possible.
In the most recent works are then pieces belonged to older works, as memories. A memory that becomes personal and global structural basis, the gradual experience that stratifies, between causes and effects.
In NEVERCREW’s work the mechanisms are the trigger, the generator from which the rest develops. They consider them the primary key to understand and allow them to give a proportion to things. Obviously, as mentioned, they see as “mechanism” in a broader sense also the whole system which they represent: the group of elements in an artwork which in turn is compared with what surrounds them physically or conceptually. The relationship between the parties is extended to the whole of reality, the place and the viewer, that they seek to involve on different levels (logical, emotional, associative). This then completes the structure with its own vision, with its history and its multiple interpretations, and he is given a way to look at a system, of which it is part, from the outside.
