During the performance, we are going to see the layering of non-obvious dividing lines between real event and reconstruction. The vernissage event itself can be defined as a space, reconstructed for renovation of view, questions and senses.
Artist-talk / at 6.40 PM
During the talk, Irina Ivannikova will tell about her work on the latest project “Repairs”, in which multimedia practice combine her interests in photography, installation and performance arts.
About the project:
The project has begun with the repairs photos folder I found on the internet. I was sorting them by categories and then it was more of a procrastination. Further, I decided to use construction and building materials in my installations and during the process I realized it was the way to understand and feel my inner reconstruction, the way to live through crisis.
The room in installation is an existential shelter for inner events fixation through the reconstruction of repairs. My installations photographs are the continuation of photo archive, found on the internet. Their combination detects flickering of borders between inner and outer, imaginary and real spaces. Photography is fixating duration and immobility of changes. Watching the permanent repairing process is becoming a self-value.
