Omsk Social Club:
Just Us
16 minutes

Omsk Social Club's newly commissioned sonic work Just Us is a hyper-performative wandering experience in dialogue with Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg's living artwork Pollinator Pathmaker. The piece unfolds as a score of sonic and verbal elements that guide through the garden's hidden pathways, offering spaces of introspection. Just Us explores how the concept of friendship might act as a node between botanical, human and other characters.

Omsk Social Club

Omsk Social Club is a collective whose artistic practice is created between two lived worlds, one of life as we know it and the other of role play. These worlds bleed into one, creating a chasm of enquiry that takes the form of a specific immersive methodology they coined in 2017, called Real Game Play: collective immersion and speculative worlding. From these live iterations, media relics such as films, scripts and large-scale installations are harvested, invoking gateways of fiction or a yet unlived reality. In the past, Omsk Social Club’s Real Game Play immersive environments have explored topics such as memetic visual architectures, cryptoraves, desire&sacrifice, asemic hyper tools, micro-gridded affinity groups, DAOs and consensus rituals.

They have exhibited across Europe in various institutions such as Gropius Bau, Berlin; La Casa Encendida, Madrid; HeK (Haus der elektronischen Künste), Basel; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin and CCCB: Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona. They have been included in CTM Festival (2021), 34th Ljubljana Biennial (2021) and co-curated the 7th Athens Biennale with Larry Ossei-Mensah in 2021.
