During the first trial art-project "The rooms" there were 7 autonomous exhibitions, which lasted for 1 week. There were more than 30 artists, performers and curators participating. The spaces for each exhibition were inhabited rooms, which never held art-projects before. Every room or the whole apartment had their own "world": working schedule, atmosphere, curator with concept and list of artists.The project is provoking the changing of private space and its functions, which is happening by transforming flats and rooms into public place available to curators, artists and visitors.
This way,"The rooms" project is:
Experiment on private space of the room through turning it into art-expositional site
Experiment on art works and performances, which are held in routine space of kitchen or bedroom etc
Experiment on people who will be a part of this action in any way: on artists, owners of the rooms, visitors (guests), experiment on their feelings and reactions
Experiment on people's trust.
We are planning to held the exhibition in rooms twice a year. The next one is sheduled for the end of Spring 2020. To see how it was the last time - watch our documentary video
