13 05 2017 Lection-performance by Volodymyr Kaufman is storytelling about sound, its diversity, possibilities, influence. Non-figurative painting, non-figurative art are often incomprehensible, but the sound is also non-figurative, and it understands everyone. This process was dipping into performance and turning back to the audience as a lector. It was a dialogue between musical silence and performer. Vlodko’s lecture included analysis of music instruments sound interpretations piano or pianoforte, grand piano.
Kaufman has many times experimented with this instrument in his previous works. To avoid “sadism” he used dead grand pianos and pianos, that get to be monuments, art-objects, completed with color. About picture series, Vlodko said, that in Prypyat was something incredible. There was absolute silence, dangerous, which I still remember… I touched strings of the dead grand piano and they cracked from the touch of my fingers, gave last sound… I have never heard that. When I think back to that I dig there.
After that performed young artists, graduates of School of Performance Art. Maryna Naumchuk used just one object – white yarn, which appointed her movement trajectory. The performance of Uliana Kulchytska is a research of interaction between space, object, author, and audience. Artist said, that as she took to the sheet, untouched, as those to whom it moved to, avoided it. Roman Khrushch and Zoriana Savka worked in tandem, investigated symbolics of images, signs, proprio- and exteroceptive sense.
