Johannes Equizi (1996) was always fascinated by the act of creating fictional narratives, from micro-daily habits to worldwide systems. With an architectural background, graduate from the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague, his research interests linger over themes of collective emancipation, interstitial irregularities and the way humans dwell environments. He believes in the reciprocal unfolding of affinities as a way to trigger, beyond institutional frames, alternative human and extra-human relations.
Through learning-by-doing and mutual sharing approaches, Johannes Equizi's practice continuously overlaps different mediums - from writing over welding to performances and storytelling - to create installations helping the public to imagine how things could be otherwise.
At the moment he is reflecting on the narrative power that allows making and remaking worlds and what role a designer plays in the construction of utopias. How could these provoke tangible societal changes? Such questions, within his cross-disciplinary research, are guiding and shaping Johannes Equizi's practice, on the threshold between tangible and speculative.
