A solyanka soup as a metaphor of creative process
Joakim Hansson and Sebastian Mugge, ALTE SCHWEDEN artistic duo, will give a presentation of some intermediate results of their “Neighbours” project at the Vyhod Media Centre on Friday, 25th of November at 17.00.
In programme: a cocktail of photo- and video installations, discussions on the project, sketches from Sebastian, soft drinks and a soup. A real solyanka soup that will be cooked during the evening so everyone could taste it.
ALTE SCHWEDEN artistic duo are November guests at the Karelian art-residency. The project they are implementing is called “Neighbours” and is dedicated to Karelia – a territory between Russian-Finnish border. “We are interested in finding out how people living in the areas close to the border look at their common cultural heritage, their related languages and traditions. What does one think of ones neighbour on the other side of the border? What does the future hold for this demographic area that spans two nations?”
Answers to these questions ALTE SCHWEDEN want to receive interviewing the people living in Russian and Finnish Karelia. During their stay in the residency, the artists held many meetings and recorded about 15 interviews in Petrozavodsk, Essoila, Pitkyaranta and Medvezhyegorsk from people of different age, occupation and social groups.
A final result of the project will be an exhibition in a form of a multidisciplinary installation, planned to exhibit in Russia and Finland in 2017-2018.
