Violet INNER VISIONS

Violet INNER VISIONS is a periodic collective book showcasing Russian artists whose work is largely informed by their subjective, emotional, unrestricted perception of themselves and the world around them.
This first issue presents work by Nikita Khalkin, Katherina Sadovsky and Andrey Krapivin who relentlessly yet with a certain subtlety address what usually is tabooed as blasphemous, pornographic and morbid.
It`s raw, eclectic and a bit mystical.
Curated and edited by Anna Block.

Waters Break Rocks

“Waters break rocks” is a part of ongoing “Elements” project- my artistic attempt to explore untamed forces of nature underlying life of a human being.

It is an imaginative journey into space where corporeal life of human being intertwine with the ominous energy of pure wild forces and unspoken instincts. I pursue to observe or rather to feel what stands beyond its enthralling physicality – its inner dormant volcanoes and subterranean waters, its energy of growth and its resilience to outer forces but also a drive of every living creature to its inevitable death.

_mg_21842

Our bodies are decaying every second and we are all on a one-way journey.
But great circle of transformation knows no end.

Black Box

For my final summer semester exhibition in Jan Evangelista Purkine University I performed “Artist in the Box” action. During a week every day for 5 hours non-stop I was standing in a light-proof booth sized 1×1 meter and 2 meters high. The box was placed in a university gallery space open for public.

Instruction read: There is an artist in the box. Only one person at a time can enter the box. When entering the box lock the door inside. When being in a box do what you want. You can stay inside as long as you want. There is no documentation of this performance.



Beyond Verbal

Beyond verbal” is a 70 minutes video recording an action of communication between two people (me and invited participant) who don`t speak the same language. They have never seen each other before they meet for the first time in front of the camera. Each of them speak their native language (Russian and Portuguese) which can`t be literally understood by another person. Trying this interaction they place themselves in experimental area of no set rules and no expectations of a definite result.

High time to summarise

“Birds of passage” is one of my recent  photo series presented as a winter semester work at Rampa Gallery of UJEP University in Czech Republic where I study now.

“Birds of passage” is a diary-style project describing my inner state of two first months after leaving Moscow for Czech Republic and comprising photographs (both mine own as well as my friend`s and unknown stuff found in abandoned house), self-portraits, texts of my diaries, notes, letter scans. It also includes video recording of my sitting on a chair in a busy street in Prague during the rush hour which expresses a quintessence of being in the middle of unknown foreign environment with no connection with the place and people with whom I share neither common language nor any kind of mutual interest.

screen-shot-2014-07-07-at-853-1024x6401

This series is an attempt to convey my state of lost identity while starting a new life after leaving my homeland, a journey to unknown, falling out from habitual system of coordinates. In this case photography becomes not only the way of observing and studying new environment but also a way to find my physical place in it - metaphorically it is a way to appropriate things which gives me illusion that I own something, that though being lost I still exist.
