ARCHEOLOGY OF ONE APARTMENT
Archaeology of One Apartment is the performance which aims to research the mnemonic relation of the generation of millennials with the material historical legacy through the symbolic archaeological exploration of typical Soviet apartment of the 60s. The term archaeology in this performance strives to produce knowledge about the paradoxes of historical memory using the artistic study of objects from the apartment interior and its semiotic potential.
“SOUNDS OF THE PRUT” ART RESIDENCY
Sounds of the Prut is the art residency which results in the production of a musical composition inspired by anthropological research and soundscape studies of the Prut river area in Chernivtsi by Ukrainian, Romanian and Austrian sound artists.
Sound artists had been working together for 10 days in Chernivtsi and online. Before sound recordings and studio work the participants met with local experts: researchers of the historical, urban and cultural significance of the river for the urban environment. The residents studied the context of the Prut and created a musical work that presented to a wide audience at the end of the project.
The composition was made from field recordings in a genre of experimental electronic music. The work process combined methods of social sciences (participant observation, interviews, source study), acoustic ecology (soundwalks, field recordings), and art (reimagination on metaphorical level).
During intermediate stages of the residency, insights of the work process were be shared with students, musicians and the interested public.
The participants: Anamaria Pravicencu (Bucharest, Romania) Anna Khvyl (Kyiv, Ukraine) Fabian Holzinger aka Abby Lee Tee (Linz, Austria) Veronika Kanishcheva / Diser Tape (Kyiv, Ukraine) Andriy Kyrychenko (Kyiv, Ukraine) Anna Kravets (Kyiv, Ukraine)
