POLINA KANIS “The Shift”, 2016

The action in this video centers on events involving the workers of a closed institution, housed in the building of a former museum. We find the staff performing their primary duties, which require strict adherence to the rules. Their labor remains off camera, giving the impression that perhaps they aren’t actually doing anything at all, rather just stabilizing the system through their mere presence alone. Everything runs smoothly, up until…

EXHIBITION “GEOMETRY OF HISTORY” / “ГЕОМЕТРИЯ ИСТОРИИ”

The exhibition gives the term “history” or “story” a visual form, and shows its complexity, flexibility, non-linear structure and context-sensitive transformations. Everyone determines his own beginning and the end of the story, permanently creating a new geometry. The place and time of an event, its course and sequence, are abstractions which the human being builds in his imaginary world, in search for stability. In deed, a construct which can be…

INTERVIEW WITH GOROD USTINOV

Gorod Ustinov: Die ursprüngliche Motivation für unser künstlerisches Schaffen war ein Gefühl von innerer Leere, die sich nicht aus äusseren Quellen auffüllen lies. Wir beide fingen an etwas zu erschaffen, was zu einer Basis für die weitere Existenz werden sollte. Es wandelte sich zu einem tektonischen Prozess um, zu einem der Schaffung von neuen Territorien, oder besser gesagt neuen Mikroterritorien. Indem wir den Namen Gorod Ustinov annahmen, verbanden wir unsere…

EXHIBITION “LIVE”

At the interface between technology and nature, plants are growing on mounds of soil, nurtured by the four elements air, water, fire and earth. We – observers and actors – collaborate and attune; searching for the tone of the earth, listening to the sound of the wind, asking for the right measure: Sound and silence, rhythm and chaos, solo or dialogue. The performance „LIVE“ is an expression of the artists…

IN A CONVERSATION WITH DARIA MARCHIK

Daria: I work with costumes in making a human installation. There is always an element of nature in it, like in a fairy tale. The outwear or the second skin on my characters, so to speak, is a dramatized persona or an image of the future… I think it is a merger…industrial evolution of our time merging with the natural eco system merging with fantasy characters. They are my fantasy….
