Alexandra Artamonova, Eugenia Lapteva_MUDAlexandra Artamonova Eugenia Lapteva (“Gentle Women”) MUD 2011 7:00


Girls from the poor villages at the Curonian Spit at Baltic sea coast that historically was a part of East Prussia used to wear a white dress for only few occasions in their life – baptismal ceremony, communion and the farewell to the ground ceremony carried out before getting married. The farewell used to be an obligatory rite every bride had to go through before leaving her parental home. Wearing a wedding dress and their best jewelry young brides used to go to the gulley and throw themselves into the mudflow that was running slowly from the hillside into the sea. They were trying to immerse themselves as much as possible into the ground, nestle up to it and get into it.  This action symbolizes how hard it is to say goodbye to your youth and the home ground.

“Gentle women”

“Gentle women” art group was founded in 2008. The group’s mission is exploration of women’s nature through the prism of rites’ transformation. The founders and participants of the group  Eugenia Lapteva and Alexandra Artamonova are born in Kaliningrad in 1987, both are PRO ARTE Institute (St. Petersburg, Russia) graduates.

Roman Korzhov MISSING 2014 3:00


The main object of observation in these artworks becomes the very sight of another entity, the carrier of hidden contents — the char­acters of “Missing” just look through in darkness not seeing the au­dience in front of. These people, by authors words, are “absent in themselves”, projecting on the absence of beholder. We see the very look but not the personality. Thus the very portrait genre suspends or even destroys, becoming just the only shell of the portrait genre. Visual materials, author works with, isolates from the reality living autonomous life…” Quote from the “Look from Zero Point” article of Constantine Zatsepin.
