HangaroH Collective, originally formed as The In Between Collective in 2016 deepens fields of existence into innovative forms of sharing research by experimenting with artistic methods to question and expand frames of reference. Many of our interventions happen in the public and are often reactions to social processes or interactions with the environment. We embrace place by exploring transdisciplinary approaches in experiential experiments leading to creation.
The collective was formed by the artists Bartaku (Belgium), Seila Fernández Arconada (Spain), Anne Glassner (Austria) and Laurie Sheridan (USA) in Latvia 2016.
exhibition "Rising up Flowing down" in Viennese Watertower, May 2018
HangaroH Collective was invited to take part at Rising Up, Flowing Down exhibition at the Viennese Watertower in May 2018 to which we contributed with a number of artistic imputs including Handling Source, Leaky Tower, Sink Tank and Sleep Pods. These works were made in response to this event therefore unique and in deep relation to the place where they took place, the Watertower and the exhibition Rising Up, Flowing Down.

April 25-27, 2018 – Intervention Anne Glassner/ Bartaku
Aalto University, Otaniemi, Espoo, Finland
A nap is form of polyphasic sleep: during the nap state, the mind is “ uid and hyper-associative”, giving rise to images that can express layers of memories and sensations. This experimental intervention is inspired by the interest in unconsciousness processes: whats going on in the brain while we sleep, why naps are so powerful, how sleep im- proves our memory but perhaps including things we would rather forget, how we benefit from napping, and how people can train themselves in napping.

Collaborative Project with Seila Fernandez Arconada (UK/Spain), Bartaku (Fin/Be), Anne Glassner (Aus), Laurie Sheridan (US)
This project took place in an old Soviet hangar, an important space of the Aizpute's local heritage (Latvia). This space was closed for sometime keeping some materials and objects from a different era. We worked with those materials presenting them as an installation piece to the public.
