Verinssage 21.04.2017 Natalia Egorova "Recensere"

Natalia Egorovas works are to a large extent works based on process, where the finished work and the process struggle for attention, often displayed works can be documentation of performance and intervention. In her pieces Natalia Egorova incorporates historical, scientific and social aspects. The presence of the uncanny is often hinted beyond her works. With a background in printmaking Natalia now focuses on video as her main expression, often this is combined with performance. In the exhibition "Recensere" Natalia shows works from the past six years in her carreer. The works range from interpretations of a strict disciplinary education/upbringing , a notion of a connection between inner personal space and the outside world and the struggle in monotonous marching towards an uncertain future but not moving. Egorovas works can be interpreted as preparation for as well an individual trauma as a collective trauma in an ever more uncertain and authoritarian world.

The Other

The project called "The Other", led by Joakim Hansson and Sofia Runarsdotter, took place in Mostar, Bosnia Hercegovina between may 2015 and september 2016.

Workshops, seminars, presentations and discussions were arranged in order to lead up to a collection of images created by the participants, showing how they see their lives in their hometown of Mostar, a town that not long ago was ravaged by war. A war that some of the participants in the project were not a part of as they were born after the diseintegration of Yugoslavia in the 1990s, while others experienced it as children growing up.

Even though a large amount of the participants in the project have no personal experience of the war they have inherited the war through the memories of their parents, relatives and other persons older than them. The conflict ended two decades ago, yet still affects the people of Mostar today. It is unavoidably a part of the collective and individual stories that the towns selfimage rests upon and it is a basis for thinking of ones own townspeople as devided into "us" and "them".
