Art Residency

Natalia Petrova/Tatika. Russia, Moscow
Project “Nobody Will Find Us in This Forest”

Nobody will find us in this forest unless we ourselves decide to show up. We all hide behind masks and just a few people around us are allowed to see our true face. In crowded urban places and deserted woods, anywhere in fact, individuals are lonely. We are all lonely, no matter how our life looks to others. The important thing is how we manage to use our life; it is important to master it. It is important to understand that you are lonely but not alone as long as you have your own self, this is first and foremost.

The project involves creating masks, costumes or dolls and placing them in different locations.

Project “A New Mythology of Kolomna”

In Artkommunalka, I propose to implement “A New Mythology of Kolomna”, a mockumentary project, in which, with the participation of local people, we will recall, invent, and visualize new urban myths for Kolomna. Largely thanks to the mythologization of life, everyday ideas are placed within the category of eternal values. After all, a myth can be, if not immortal, at least, much more long-lasting than a human life. The final exhibition will include audio and video materials, objects, photos, graphics and texts.

 

Yod. Russia, St.Petersburg.
Project “Me. Human Being: the World”

The project “Me. Human Being: the World” analyzes the image of a modern person of the digital age, expressed by nature in particular by remote landscapes. The subject will be revealed through a series of paintings consisting of diptychs. Each diptych dedicates one real natural landscape. While searching for such landscapes, I discovered that the Artkommunalka residence is located in one of the most beautiful places of Russia, providing artists with the opportunity to capture the natural wealth of the Kolomna region in their works. At the art residence I plan to create a diptych consisting of picturesque panels.

 

Anna Tereshkina. Russia, St.Petersburg.
Project “A Portrait of My Grandmother”

At the art residence, I want to continue my graphic project launched in 2015. This is a series drawings made automatically while listening to audio recordings of my grandmother’s memories. Working with family history is important to me, as it is a field which is close to me. My grandmother lived the same life as many other women of her time, but history remembers heroes not ordinary people. I want to put those closest to me into the history using art, to intertwine the lines of time and look for connections with modernity.

 

Maya Simkin. UK, London.
Project “Rapid Rise” or “Хлеб
всему головa”

This research is on the intersection of kalach bread and labor. I have read that the origin of this bread was so that workers could hold “the handle” without having to wash their hands, eating the rest and discarding the handle. This development reminds me of Charlie Chaplin’s Eating Factory. The idea that a type of bread should be invented for the sole purpose of skipping handwashing so workers could work faster is very interesting to me. The traditional kalach has nearly disappeared from the global culinary scene, and I hope this project will help preserve its history. I hope to also delve into a story that explores handwashing and other time-based rituals in relation to labor. I plan to have a presentation of ‘bread sculptures’ along with hand-washing performances and to publish a zine.

 

Literature Residency

Marta Raitses. Russia, St.Petersburg.
Project “Seven Evenings Kolomna”

Over seven evenings, Kolomna teenagers will write their first plays about their city and their lives in it. On the eighth evening they will read their texts to the public. I have extensive experience working with teenagers in the Knigogid.ru (Book Guide) project and I am a playwright who knows the craft. These debut texts are sure to be interesting and inspiring.

 

Sergei Vassiliev. Russia, Novosibirsk.
Project “49”

For seven weeks, every day, I’ll write one sketch. These sketches are something in between diary entries and a study of how a person is affected by the environment (in the spirit of Guy Debord's psychogeography).

 

Anna Arkatova. Russia, Moscow.
Project “Once Upon a Time in Kolomna”

Over 2-4 weeks in the cultural centers (libraries, educational institutions, literary cafes) of the city, I will conduct writing improvisation sessions under the general logo “Once upon a time in Kolomna” (the particular topics will vary). The idea of these sessions is to write, in 15 minutes, a coherent text in any genre on a topic that is announced just before the writing exercise. Participants write and then read what they have written. The limited time, the slight sense of rivalry, the unexpected topic, and the publicity of what is happening recreates a brainstorming session in which creative energy awakens. Participants, Kolomna residents, will write stories, letters, anecdotes, or dreams, with associations connected with Kolomna. Thus, we get an extensive and lyrical portrait of the city and its inhabitants. The best essays are included in the book, which will be compiled during my residence.
