“Ready-Made World” Laboratory of the Visual and Performing Arts Centre “ART Corporation”
Premiere —October 2, 2020
Authors and Performers Ksenia Shtalenkova, Roman Enotov
The team members tried to find substantive equivalents to reflections on memory and attempts to usurp it, the tragedy of the Holocaust and the artist's personal tragedy, which so often accompanies the creator. An important part of the research was not only the study of abstract memory mechanisms, but also the study of their functioning in a specific urban space — in Minsk of different eras. The sketch attracts special attention as a work created in the field of artist's theatre — the key figure in its creation was the artist Roman Enotov.
Ksenia Shtalenkova — a writer, designer, visual culture researcher. The author of the books Another Side of the Mirror (2012, 2016) and The Guberniya detective. The Case of the Blood-Stained Ducats (2017). Ksenia's debut play Prostochen'slozhno (It's Just Very Difficult) (2019), written in Dmitry Bogoslavsky's laboratory “Otkryvachka-2” at the Center of Belarusian Drama, was awarded a special prize at the international competition “Badenweiler 2020”. Ksenia also teaches at the European Humanities University and studies philosophy in a doctoral programme.
Roman Enotov — an artist, designer, calligrapher. During one of his most significant projects, he was a technical producer and curator of foreign artists at the international urban art festival Vulica Brasil (2016–2019). At the moment, he studies at the European Humanities University.
In the theatre laboratory “Ready-Made World” Ksenia and Roman are working on a new project MEMORIA NOMINIS CLARA as a team of a playwright and a production designer. Especially for the project at the laboratory, Ksenia wrote a play of the same name, while Roman created the substantively-visual solution for the sketch of the play.
The presentation of the sketch will be followed by a discussion. Moderator — Elena Malchevskaya, curator of the “READY-MADE WORLD” project.
