Vector of Perm
Central Exhibition Hall (within ARTBAT FEST 4, Almaty)
7 – 18 Oct
In mathematics, a Vector is a segment directed or found in a particular coordinate system, change of this direction changes the direction of a vector itself. In this formula an artist is an alternating quantity and the history of a place is a constant though hardly determinable quantity.
Perm culture is based on myths and folklore; it is expanding its borders, introducing in its own space free stylistic manifestations of contemporary art ideas, opening new dimensions in the work of artists.
Vitaliy Patsyukov, curator of the National Centre for Contemporary Art expressed his vision on the project: “In its rather ascetic model Vector of Perm project hopes to find a new point of view on the processes occurring in the visual and conceptual city culture. The Project imagery strives towards the integrity and at the same time to multi-layering, as evidenced by visual and plastic vectors of Perm region, their semantic topography, ethnic and cultural roots and intellectual reflection. The structure of the project and its core issues are formed with not only such traditional genres as painting, drawing and sculpture; video installation genre is introduced to contribute to deeper understanding as additional opportunity for recognition of dynamic multi-dimensional cultural life of Perm”.
In association of all artists and curators the project idea was realized in the form of an exhibition, making the subtotal of art development in the city of Perm for those viewers and artists, who are looking forward to the future.
