The program "Volga. Zero "- the first project of the Central Volga branch of the NCCA, launched in January 2015 and implemented at the Factory-kitchen, and in 2016-2017 - at the Samara regional historical museum.
Nelya Korzhova: “Volga” is a constant of Samara metaphysics, “Zero” is a start, a new countdown, an irrespective level. The main idea was to give authors an opportunity for personal expression as there are very few personal exhibitions in the city. It could be seen how the laboratory process was changing our common “artistic unconscious” when nothing could replace the author’s self-critical point of view, sudden understanding of discoveries and faults. General mentality of Samara artists tends to understand the “body of landscape” perceived as their own bodies with the currents of the earth matching their inner aspirations”.
Konstantin Zatsepin: “We tried to make visible the actual “map” for the local field of art activities. Creating the line of highly charged eventivity as a sequence of personal exhibitions, we compared art languages. On the one hand, the program became the revision of the languages, and on the other hand, our target was to help artists to explore senses which are important for them, to arrange elements of their own art language thus overcoming initial sparsity of local context”.
