Registration is mandatory.


Performance by Alevtina Kakhidze in the framework of her solo show “TV Studios / Rooms without Doors”  

On Saturday, June 14, at 18:00 the PinchukArtCentre invites to a performance by Alevtina Kakhidze in the framework of her solo show TV Studios / Rooms without Doors” that opened a new exhibitions series of the “PAC-UA Re-consideration”. The aim of the Re-consideration is to research the relations and influences between Ukrainian art scene of today and artistic practices of the past.

In “TV studios / Rooms without Doors” Alevtina Kakhidze draws inspiration from “Solid Television Studio” (1998) installation by Vassily Tsagolov. She refers to Tsagolov’s message about television stating that “what appears as a reality has been formed inside the walls of the TV studio”. Kakhidze widens this idea saying that every reality can be staged and its perception manipulated.  

Swapping reality and fiction is Kakhidze’s way to continue her story writing where the truth seems to be imaginary and the imaginary seems to be truthful. During the exhibition the artist will make five story-based live performances that will be broadcasted in a format of TV news as part of her exhibition.

The last performance:
