“Bilovodsk / Poshuk” (“Bilovodsk / Search”) exhibition at the Bilovodsk Regional History Museum within the “Under construction: Museum open II” project

On February, 19 at 2 p.m. Bilovodsk Regional History Museum (Tsentralna str., 154) will host the opening of the “Bilovodsk / Search’”exhibition. The exhibition is a result of cooperation between the museum and the “DE NE DE” artistic initiative within the project Rediscovering the historical heritage of eastern Ukraine – “Under construction: Museum open II”.

“DE NE DE” initiative in Bilovodsk Local History Museum is a search of means and forms of modern regional studies. This experiment provides for finding clear forms and structures for representing an artistic work. At the same time, there is no restrictions on content.

Five artists will shoot videos within 5 days. These video works will be integrated into five museum exhibitions of the Bilovodsk Local History Museum. What do contemporary artists know about the region? How they can understand the local context? Do they give preference to document or impression? Perhaps the accents created by artists will become important semantic and visual codes for reading and understanding of this city and region.

The artists themselves choose the topic of their work in direct contact with the locality, museum, city, people and archive. Collective work provides for individual studies of the local context and the integration of research results into the main museum exposition.

Participants: Sasha Dolgiy, Leonid Trotsenko, Oksana Kuzmina, Anna Wasserwumen, Oleksiy Salmanov, Dobrynya Ivanov.

The opening of the exhibition will be on Monday, February 19.
