pvi collective are a tactical media arts group who create interdisciplinary artworks that are intent on the creative disruption of everyday life. every artwork aims to affect audiences on a personal and political level and is geared towards instigating tiny revolutions. the company aims to stretch the limits of performance to the edges of its meaning by creating playfully subversive performances and interventions, taking our audiences along with us for the ride.
underpinning our work is our ultimate goal of saving the world through creative play and revolutionary fun.
the above slideshow is from the recent season of deviator in glasgow at the surge street art festival. deviator is an immersive, real-world, outdoor game which invites players to temporarily transform their city into a playground. deviator blends radically altered versions of childrens’ games with subtle live performance, placing audiences as interventionists out on the streets, ready to creatively disrupt the city, one game at a time. for the season in glasgow, pvi also collaborated with 20 local artists to devise playful interventions for them to undertake in the city and join in with audience members playing the game.
190buckets is a tiny revolution in protest of refugee children currently in detention in Australia. Australia is currently holding 1,023 children in on and offshore detention centres. We don’t know their names, all we have is the numbers. In protest against the Australian Governments Immigration Policy, pvi collective and creative comrades set ourselves the challenge to withstand 190 buckets of icy cold river water: one for every child held in detention on Nauru. This is our call to action to give voice to the remaining 833. Read more at 190buckets.
