The first Expanding Space exhibition

26.09.2015 – 30.04.2016

Thursday-Sunday, 12 PM – 8 PM
GES-2, 15, Bolotnaya emb., Moscow

Curators: Katerina Chuchalina, Alexander Burenkov, Anna Ilchenko, Olga Stebleva, Denis Stolyarov

Artists: Anna Krivtsova, Vladimir Arkhipov, Valentin Fetisov, Sonya Guimon, Arseny Zhilyaev, Anastasia Ryabova, [Veronika Zlobina, Anna Kurbatova, Alia Sadretdinova], David Essein, Alexandra Portyannikova, Kirill Savchenkov, Sara Culmann, Vikentiy Nilin, Pavel Otdelnov, Ekaterina Trubina, Supramen (Emmeli Person and Emelie Carlen), Daria Irincheeva, [Nana Greenshtein, Alexandra Lovyannikova, Viktor Shevtsov], Sergey Kasich, Elena Kholkina, Vladimir Potapov, Urban Fauna Lab (Anastasia Potemkina, Alexey Buldakov).


The works included in the longlist raise questions concerning the relevance of traditional forms of monumental art in the modern urban environment, the evolution of the architectural landscape and political space, as well as considering the new and old norms of social life and communication. Preservation of silence, the expansion of weeds and the intervention of scents, dinners in the courtyard, pond rehabilitation, meta-sport practices in the underground passage – are all different ways of doing that.

The exhibition of works of the longlist participants not only demonstrates the projects, which took part in the competition, but also shows how the ideas change in the process of adaptation to the realities of the urban environment, under what conditions - semantic, visual, communication, spatial, temporal, administrative, climate and others – the works really begin to function as public art.

The shortlist of the competition was formed in middle of the year, and now V-A-C foundation, together with the artists, is working on the implementation of the project. In this work we are equally interested in result and the process, the theory and the practice of artistic gestures in an open space, which were not initiated

by the city’s authorities. The implementation of such projects requires many technical agreements, collective effort, and possibly compromises. However, the process itself raises the issue of the limitations of what is possible in the city.

Пусть будет эта история…❤️

NZ climb medal table at IPC Swimming World Champs

On Day 6 of the IPC Swimming World Championships the New Zealand team continued to reinforce their reputation as a world force passing Australia to sit in sixth place on the medal table. Sophie Pascoe and Cameron Leslie once again led the way with a gold medal each with Pascoe breaking the Oceania record in her event. Not to be outshone team mate Nikita Howarth secured bronze. With one day to go of the World Championships the New Zealand medal tally is now 12 medals, including 9 gold.

Sophie Pascoe swam a gripping race in the Women’s 100m Backstroke S10, setting a new Oceania record of 1 minute 5.95 seconds, just five hundredths of a second off the world mark. She led Nina Ryabova of Russia (1:10.50) and Katherine Downie of Australia.

London Paralympic gold medallist and world record holder Cameron Leslie went into the Men’s 150m Individual Medley SM4 clear that he would defend his title. He swam a commanding race convincingly beating Takayuki Suzuki of Japan and Jonas Larsen of Denmark to gold by almost 6 seconds.

Nikita Howarth, showed why she was selected as New Zealand’s youngest ever Paralympian as she swam a strong race winning bronze in the Women 50m Fly S7, her first medal at world championship level. She joined Brianna Nelson of Canada (gold) and Susannah Rodgers of Great Britain (silver) on the podium.

Jon Shaw (Head Swim Performance Coach, Paralympics New Zealand) says, “Our team is truly making their mark on this meet.” He continues, “With only one day left of the World Championships and five of our swimmers in the pool it is going to be a great day.”
