Boomfest «Pas_de_deux»

September 17 - October 11 2015

Pas de deux (Switzerland - Russia)

September 24 - October 10

ART re.FLEX Gallery

 

The project “Pas de deux”, which lasted for a year, featured three “dancing” couples: Olga Lavrentieva and Pierre Wazem, Lika Nüssli and Victoria Lomasko, and finally Milva Stutz / Julia Marti and Askold Akishin. Ever since 2014, when the artists met at Boomfest, they have been exchanging letters, photos and stories about themselves and shared their outlook at what is happening in the world. In the process these materials have formed interesting stories about stereotypes seen through the eyes of Russian and Swiss artists, poignant stories of personal experiences, statements on topics urgent for Russian society, that help to understand the stereoscopic quality of the world and see the value of each author's view of the world.
