“Rhetorics of Power”
The project “Rhetorics of Power” presents work in a variety of media by six artists from Russia and Norway.
Though the themes and methods inherent to these artists’ practices vary from one another, they are all joined by a shared interest in the problem of power on a phenomenological level.
The paradigm of “power” is considered in this project as an unmediated engagement with a wide understanding of “force” and synthesizes a full spectrum of meanings and parallel lines of thought.
Within the space of the exhibition, in the main hall of the Museum of Nonconformist Art, the artists are invited to construct alternative interpretations of the phenomenon of “power”, which in turn invite the viewer to gaze upon this complicated phenomenon from varying philosophical, socio-political, and cultural perspectives.
At the exhibition Norwegian artists Ingeborg Annie Lindahl, Marita Isobel Solberg, Emilija Skarnulyte and Ina Otzko together with Russian artists Anastasia Vepreva and Anna Tereshkina will present video works, installations, paintings and photo collages.
The epigraph to the exhibition is the quotation of famous French philosopher Michel Foucault: “Power is everywhere; not because it embraces everything, but because it comes from everywhere”.
