Body, space, and name are three most important
characteristic of human existence, which are under the influence of each
other, and exist in time.
The main idea of the project: creation
on the exhibit place special artistic space, law - accidental structure,
projection of reality and time, where
body and name of real town's space intersect
with bodies and names of real men.
Artistic conception and fillings will create
general conditions to start "the game", and step by step project's space
will be filled with real things,
traces of real people and life.
Geographical organization, details of everyday
life, accidental stuff, things and names, taste and sound of present CITY
and tales of it's times", public mind and people's
mentality examples, will be collected and overworked into artifacts, symbols
Street's stuff, photographs, video, audio
records of town, as well as public who will get into the projective space
will get a new value, and will
become a part of context. All visitors will be
photographed, their footprints will be signed with names and dates, and
colored in blue on symbolic
map of CITY on the paper which will lay
over the floor. Photographs of faces will be situated on the walls above
the black line - kind of border between present and past which will round
over exhibit space. Brought in stuff will be colored in blue and will be
brought out, back to the town,
as an artistic projection into the real space.
This way, during the time of the project, up
to the end of exhibition, will get a visible life "another map" of
CITY, where will be collected and
expressed SUBJECTIVE ARTISTIC SENSES, CRYSTAL
SOUND OF BEING, and BLUE SHADOWS OF ACCIDENTAL EXISTANCE.
Project Body, space, name supposed to be realized
"in progress" in the most important for human culture big sites, which
are "concentrated life,
and time". Each time project should be realized
in collaboration with artists who live in the city which give to project
the own name.
Wien, supposed to be the second place for realization
of the project. First project was had done in the St-Petersburg, in common
work with Switzerland's artist Jorg Mollet in 1999.
