We started Trollkrem so that we could realize all of the most adventurous ideas we had hidden away in our old sketch books. Everything that didn’t fit anywhere else because it was too big, to ambitious, to extravagant, too glossy and too weird finally found a home and eventually made it into the the big book of teux deux. Trollkrem1234.
And from that starting point we developed a plan to establish a meeting point, a platform if you will. Uniting all of our contacts, friends and colleagues that we thought were doing interesting stuff in the common purpose of making a new kind of performance art. We wanted to showcase the exhibitionism, the self awareness, the idealism and the theatricality as something connected to the social human. Trollkrem social club. No Cuban cigars, but lots of smoke machines and strobe lights.
Under the cover of a two-headed troll we could now reach out to anyone we felt would be a perfect fit for our projects. Designers, composers, visual artists, dancers, singers — into the bag. We have created a living organism, it feeds off of other plants, takes advantage of the skills and creativity of the ones we grab with our sticky troll fingers. And up from the cracks grows a beautiful fungus. Growing out of the stem of the tree, perfectly shaped, though with a slightly odd shape. Trollkrem takes its energy from all of you around us, making each project a joint effort, owned by no one and everyone.
