Maximalist Counter is the combination of the swiss artist Maya Rochat, the collective U5 that lives and works in Switzerland and Singapore, and the French collective (Music for) Eggplant. Maya works with layered/multidimensional installations (live paintings, prints, videos, music, performance). U5 challenges the traditional notions of authorship with works produced always in collaboration. Very often they involve a combination of video, live stream images and sound. (Music for) Eggplant works with music improvisation, nonsense sounds and musical density. Together, they form a collective of collectives, bringing a multifaceted and dynamic approach to the concept of collaboration and to the notion of authorship in contemporary photography.
