2018 during the Nonknowledge Zone
The route to the scene and artists property as tools for the performative installation were presented in Mannheim in July 2018.
On the morning of July 19, 2018, our bikes rolled into the exhibition space of Port25. We threw our things on the floor — now this is our installation. By performing of the artistic act, we turn things into the art objects and then return them back to everyday life. These funny and at the same time terrible transformations leave on the things a lasting trace. Things start to flicker in a permanent metamorphosis.
Projection on the Tent video link
The axis of the work is a video projected on a tent. The duration of the sound performance is determined by the length of the video (forty three minutes); it is about the way from Moscow to Mannheim: experience time turns to be looped and stops at the starting point.
The pathway itself can be interpreted as a series of miracles that let event happen; the video captures how reality responds to the intention in circumstances of complete chance. With the help of an artistic act, things have been turned into an art object and then returned to everyday life. Their life as art-objects is instant and solemn; they do not become a product awaiting its fate in the dark warehouse. They return to their source, revealing its flickering imprint on themselves. The spectators can witness these metamorphoses, synchronizing with us in time and space.
