Project “Myths and legends of Eastern Europe”
From time immemorial the East has been believed to be the area of wisdom whereas the West was seen as the zone of practical implementation of synthetic ideas. Evolutionary loops, moving from east to west and back, generate extrapolated and sometimes grotesque cultural stereotypes.
The archetype of place and space has a certain effect on the structure of the external manifestations of human emotions and cultural ideologies. This is where the West perceives the eastern part of Europe as something mysterious, as the place where the world is similar to the alternative reality. However, the eastern peoples themselves consider their own soul as a kind of mystery. It is misunderstood and obscure to the end. In the minds of people there used to live a religious principle, then it was replaced by the communist ideology during the days of the Soviet Union. This basis also disappeared with the collapse of the gigantic empire. The past is forever gone and the present is in the process of formation.
Philosophical views are like disassembled puzzles of a tangled labyrinth. Ideology that unites society is blurred. Precisely during such periods there come moments to form myths, myths that organize society. There comes a period of comprehension of self-identity. Artists meld the chaos of space with the fragmentation of consciousness and thus form a new mental world. A world that reveals the essence of things, the depth of all processes that are taking place in Eastern Europe. The exhibits are a focus of thoughts and set concrete form to the floating space of abstract ideas. New vectors of development are taking place. A comprehension of mentality and the process of probing the new codes of mythologies is occurring.
The first aim of this project is an attempt to familiarize the residents of the Far West with the myths and legends of the newly formed East. It is the place where the newborn self-identity manifests itself in the flows of human mentalities, one that constructs new myths that become visible to the rest of the world.
The second aim is an attempt to look at the East through the eyes of Western Europeans.
How to enter
We invite to the project “Myths and legends of Eastern Europe” international artists involved in practice of painting, sculpture, drawing, object, photography, mixed media and installation.
