Premiere presentation of the Polish edition of Olga Kisseleva’s project Double Life
06.12.2013 at 6 pm
Olga Kisseleva’s Double Life, a project started in 2007, is based for the most part on co-operation. In each participating city, local artists are asked to contribute their own films. So far, the project has been rolled out in Paris, Montreal, Moscow, New Delhi, Bucharest and Madrid, with 15 film diptychs realised. Kisseleva has recently brought her project to Krakow.
At the workshop held towards the end of October, artists from Krakow had the opportunity to present their ‘double life’ and thus become part of Kisseleva’s undertaking. Their works will be presented for the first time at MOCAK on 6 December, 6 pm, and will later travel around the world as an integral part of the project.
The five Polish diptychs will be accompanied by films from Canada and will contribute to a discussion of the position of Polish artists in today’s world. Olga Kisseleva will be interviewed by Marta Czyż – an independent curator – as well as Dominika Frycowska, Małgorzata Kaczmarska, Katarzyna Kornecka, Kamila Piazza and Sarah Wölker, workshop participants.
The Skype conversation will also be joined by: Natacha Clitandre – independent curator from Montreal and Mariève K. Desjardins – curator and researcher from Université du Québec. The following Canadian artists contributed their works to the project: David Champagne, Isabelle Mathieu, Stéphanie Lagueux and Jonathan L’Ecuyer.
The discussion will be held in English.
