After 6 years, I finally get convinced to prepare a solo show. PERMM Museum of Contemporary Art invites me to prepare an exhibition in the 3rd floor of the building. The show opened the 1st October and can be visited till the 15th November.
“Greetings from Molotov” seeks to influence the space for dialogue that arises between the visitor’s curiosity and permeability of uncharted territory. It is the encounter with the other that always establishes this negotiation.
The shoes fall part as they continue walking on the path. It is the same condition for human beings in our digestive process; swallow, assimilate, digest, and throw away.
From a more poetic perspective “Greetings from Molotov” highlights the need to open doors, build pathways, open spaces to enable accessibility, invent bridges and relationships; formal and conceptual. Claiming intuition and improvisation. Flee linear logic and reasoning. Tear down the establishment and find a new order and meaning . Questioning all and surprised by the magic of error. To face contradiction as a space for transit. Banish the arrogance of conclusions and coordinates.
3. PING / PONG/ Perm is a región that divides the East from the West in Rusia, but also Occident from Orient, but also Europe from China. At the same time, Perm región is considered as one from the hottest spots in the earth to see UFOs. So, we can also understand that this región divides earth form other possible worlds. A sort of big and complex intersection./ Last year, a big hole appeared in Perm región and it continues to grow wider and deeper. Causes are not officially revealed, but seems strange that this big hole appear on this big intersection that’s Perm region./ A big drama that government try to cover on white snow and dark smoke.
