OUR HOUSE (CONCUMERS)
(Chuvash Republic, Russia)
The artist will sketch his house on the street in front of it using millet (grain) as his medium, and grass and dirt as his canvas. A little while later, the village’s feathered inhabitants (chickens, sparrows, jackdaws, etc.) will (presumably) discover the drawing. They will join in the creative process, becoming directly implicated in the work as its viewers and consumers. Local residents and visitors whose own purposes bring them to the street will also be able to see the piece in progress.
Performance starts on October 17 at 10:00 a.m. (UTC +3)
Fedor Dubrovin’s recent practice has predominantly focused on creating immaterial, disappearing work. His pieces involve various means of creation, but are united by their key dimension, temporality; they take place in the here and now. When the event is over, nothing remains except documentation. Dubrovin is a graduate of the St. Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design (2012) and the Baza Institute for Contemporary Art and Theory in Moscow (2019).
