Snaga: One TribeWhat is One Tribe project?
One Tribe project connects photography, digital art and music, but it isn’t just that. One Tribe is result of long-term variously oriented art-work of wider group of people. It’s based on eye-catching handmade costumes, props and equipment combined with interesting locations of natural beauty, that underline unique atmosphere of scenes. One Tribe project is driven by desire to tell the story, because storytelling and annual festivities are what native tribes do to keep their culture alive. Our story isn’t stated outright, but is merely outlined to leave space for your own imagination and to picture yourself as part of it. Almost every part of the story is based on authentic experience either from LARPs (Live Action RolePlay) or life itself and all we had to do was to twist some details to more urukish nature. Characters depicted by our story are partly inspired by J. R. R. Tolkiens books, but mostly by our “normal” lives and they reflect strong relationship with nature, wandering, stories and creating tangible and intangible things. Major part of the project is photography, sections of the gallery are named after important events in the life of the tribe: Th eCamp – Maudhul, The Journey – Ogh, The Figth – Maukum, The Ritual – Kaushatar and The Burrial – Vorroz. Second part of the project is electronic ambient music which will guide you through the story, underline the photos and is planned to be released on CD later on, so you can not only see us, but hear us as well. At the final point of this project, and we are looking forward to see it as you are, official web page www.snaga.cz will be released alongside with exhibition of photos, music and some artefacts of the tribe.
With this project we would like to invite you to the borders of your imagination and inspire you to cross it, wander in the nature, wonder at its beauty and experience its real strength. This project can inspire you to create, restore, decorate or just repair objects of daily use, like members of our tribe do. It can encourage you to go further in your own matters, especially if you realize how “useless” our project for “normal” life is.
