The Propeller Group and Superflex

  • The Propeller Group was established in 2006 as a cross-disciplinary structure. Its members, Phunam, Matt Lucero, and Tuan Andrew Nguyen have initiated a multi-platform, based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Los Angeles, California. The Propeller Group is able to produce large-scale works, which expose the strategies of the type of global agency their name suggests. Their use of mass media enables them to combine seemingly contradictory themes: advertising and politics, history and future, and public and private. The Propeller Group often pushes their work back into the public sphere, using commodities as a form of public art. As an integral part of their practice, the group has cultivated the guise of an advertising agency—a public relations firm that confuses the brand and the message. SUPERFLEX work on a number of projects linked to their avowed interest in political and social engagement on a local scale. The Danish collective was founded in 1993 by Bjørnstjerne Reuter Christiansen (1969), Jakob Fenger (1968) and Rasmus Nielsen (1969). They don't place themselves in opposition, but they unpick the political, economic and communication strategies that have been put in place in a context in order to make them more visible. SUPERFLEX intervenes in places where it appears necessary to implement a “counter-economic” solution by experimenting with means of alternative production. They conceive their project in response to a context, whether it is that of an artistic institution or a social situation and create works that often establish a link between these two realities.
