It’s one of my project which I want to develop in residency time. I was thinking yesterday that it partially reflects the topic “GLOBAL IDENTITY”… Although this project has a lot of topics inside. I’ve been making this work since the oficial announce of Pandemic in the March 2020.
The processual work “Chronicles of Zeroing” is a combination of different types of documentation of the interaction of global processes and the processes of the artist’s private life since the announcement of the zeroing of presidential terms in our country of the Covid-19 pandemic, which coincided with the time. This work is dedicated to exploring the boundaries between global processes and the processes of individual life, observing the impact of physical and socio-political diseases on this space, as well as trying to find healing resources within the painful space. In this work, I would also like to talk about the transformative power of small efforts of one person, who, using the tools of art, can in a global catastrophic context reassemble fragments of reality into something new.
Stage 1 (has already completed). The author decided to make print screens of the news feed every day since the announcement of the “reset” of the presidential terms and the pandemic, since these facts themselves have become a shocking and milestone event for the author’s perception of a current reality. In the subsequent isolation at the dacha site, the author decided to create her own analogue of notches of days and take out print screens of the news feed on separate fence boards, which became an objectification of the idea of the border between local and global context. For the author it is important to set a precedent for the interaction of these news sheets with natural conditions under which these events with great impact in society cease to look so powerful and are only fragile part of the universe. During this procedural project, there is a photo and video documentation of the interaction of the author, nature and print screens of news placed off-line environment.
Stage 2 (work in progress)
After every news screen has passed the period of interaction with the external environment, I take it and find the word in its text which I could call resource / inspirational. A photo of the local texture and a mini collage made from wrappers consumed during the isolation of goods – this is my visual reflection of this word from the print screen from this day. Each collage contains a number cut out of the Lotto plates, corresponding to the number of the day from the moment of reset.WhenI create these collages the final defragmentation of the meaning of the news feed takes place, the transformation of this information field into a field with a completely new information structure and function, and the mixing of local and global contexts.
So it’s what I’m working on now. I’ve already create 30 collages and there are 83 collages left) I have to create 113 collages – one for one day of me Chronics of Zeroing.
I presented the first 30 arrivals on the pop-up exhibition “TemperatYRA_2.0” in the “Electrozavod” gallery in Moscow las month. Here is some photos from that wonderful event.
I’m working on 62nd and 68th days now. Actually The Day 68 with words “Separate” is ready after today morning=) Here some moments of process and the result.
