Radical Togetherness as a term was invented for the exhibition to identify the shared, merged and indistinguishable identities of siblings, close friends, partners or rock bands that go against the individuation process of neoliberalism. Radical Toge therness is defined by extreme co-dependency of subjects and relies on magical thinking for its realization. Prior to the presentation at Oslo10, a DNA-test was conducted to determine how close genetically siblings Anna Weile Kjær and Esben Weile Kjær really are, the anticipation and anxiety associated with receiving the letter, results in an exhibition examining togetherness, as a political strategy, be it siblinghood or otherwise.

Ai is the smallest unit of collaboration, total theatre of reciprocities and supposed syntheses, the ultimate public/private Gesamkunstwerk.

Ai are strings of inseparable sisters, warm and wet, indistinguishable one from the other, gloriously indiscriminate, promiscuous and fused. Ai are an endless geographic plane of micromeshing pulsing quanta, limitless webs of interacting blendings, leakings, mergings, weaving through ourselves, running rings around each other, heedless, needless, aimless, careless, amok. Ai are particles that can be separated in space but so intimately entangled that Ai can only be considered together. Ai are neither one nor two things, but interactive elements. Ai are and contain subpersonal components such as organs, cells and complex carbon molecules. Ai is a set of mutually compatible symptoms, vestiges of which can be seen in the woven fabrications of microbial mats, genetic codes and linguistic codifications.

Ai exercise a kind of sympathetic magic, coextensive, mutually dependent, resonant, and interactive entanglement. Neither one nor two.
