Calculation Exhibition & Artist Talk
Kurgan Oblast, Siberia, Russia
In the spring of 2016 I was invited to take part in an exhibition in Kurgan in the South of Russia. Arriving at the Siberian city of Kurgan I was interested in the expectations and first impressions of coming to a new and unfamiliar place. A place which is culturally, politically and socially very different from where I come from and what I know so far. How are the people living? How are they interacting with each other and with me as a foreigner?
This project shows a serie of documentary photos portraying Kurgan through its inhabitants. The photographies were exhibited at Kurgan Regional Museum of Art where I gave an artist talk about my observations and led a discussion about the culture I expected to find and the culture I met.
