Taisiya Krugovykh

krugovyhBorn in 1981 in Sudan and graduated from the acting faculty at the Russian Academy of Theater Arts (GITIS). She has taken part in group exhibitions in Moscow and Krasnoyarsk. Participant of the special project ”Start” at WINZAVOD Centre for Contemporary Art.

This exhibition is in the form of a movie theater, allowing viewers to instantly overcome the distance that usually defines contemporary art. Watching nine films about migrants from different countries in the familiar movie form helps viewers get a clear and realistic sense of the problem of migration. And the glossary that accompanies each film like credits enables them to understand the language of each character in the film and raises questions not only about territorial boundaries but also about mental and linguistic ones. It is much easier to overcome these boundaries by sitting in a movie theater.
The project gives meaning to the concept of multiculturalism in the context of global processes of migration. When high-ranking government officials speak of a crisis over the concept of “unity in diversity” the artist is unable to remain silent. She analyzes the objective obstacles that prevent migrants adapting to new societies. “I speak one language but I am silent in hundreds of them.” How is it that the linguistic foundations of culture evince rigidity and stability but at the same time go beyond their traditional territorial boundaries? Each person who steps into the darkness of the cinema becomes a “displaced person” and must first take a seat and select a language.
