ComLab was seeking the opportunity to work with artists who invited to LIVE AiR, http://www.liveair.org. While Jiri Suruvka as the residence artist of LIVE AiR that based in Konstepidemin during the month of October 2013, ComLab members Chuyia Chia and Joakim Stampe discussed about the guerrilla action during Gothenburg Culture Night. A plan carried out, and the concept of Fireflies as light in Culture Night in the city of Gothenburg.
As a mobile guerrilla unit, the three artists walk around to the various venues such as Litterraturhuset (Litterature House), along Linnestaden and end in Konstepidemin where the artist base during the Kulturnatta. And where there is sense of humanity and where Bacchus has set up camp, performance actions have happened.
The Fireflies will share light in the colorful darkness !
