Anna Breu & Samet Yilmaz


Collectives Anna Breu and Samet Yilmaz meet each other under the sea, where sound is muted and mermaids rule. During the residency they work together with an aquatic children’s choir and a well trained crab to compose a song to be performed live on the wetland.

Anna Breu is an artists’ collective founded in 2013. Its members are Antti Jussila, Jari Kallio, Jari Suominen and Sakari Tervo. Anna Breu’s work has dealt with time travelling, Kalevala, the myth of Atlantis, medieval tales and the paintings of Rembrandt and Akseli Gallen-Kallela. Anna Breu typically breaks down the foundations of its works and then reforms them using genre fiction.

The collective Samet Yilmaz (formerly known as k.i.Beyoncé) consists of the members Susan Kooi, Lukas Hoffmann, Lot Meijers, and Nikki Oosterveen. They started out in an artspace, hosted in a former snackbar with a flooded basement in Amsterdam. In the meantime, after dismissing their previous name, they have undergone a radical image change. Regardless of the name, they see themselves as a group that developed a way of being in the art world.
