Julia Kiryanova | Our Dilating Arcana: The Realm of Crossed Destinies

Een tentoonstelling van visual art, film, geluid en performance: dat biedt queer kunstenaar en Gaykrantredacteur Moderne Kunst Julia Kiryanova en The Alternation performance project nu zelf aan op 9 en 10 december in  de Art Chapel in Amsterdam. 

Introduction event (Engels)

Over the last two years our image of our world and our place in it has undergone radical change. Never before have we confronted our own lives from such a state of remove and with as dramatic an overview. Between Climate Change, Covid fear and World conflict, we now confront a transformed idea about destiny: for ourselves and the planet. Yet, the world has always tried to grapple with its destiny and one of the most resilient methods for this was found in a deck of cards known as the Tarot.

This project is an exhibition with performance designed for the unique 360 degree round architectural space of the Art Chapel in the Beatrixpark in Amsterdam Zuid.

This exhibition will comprise large scale drawings/paintings, short films, soundtracks and a large circular floor painted/drawn work of ten metres in diameter which will become a stage space for an evolving series of movement performances by  performers whose bodies are uniquely painted to coincide with the character of specific cards.

The exhibition is based on a highly personal reimagining by the artist of the now familiar Tarot deck which is a 78 card pack traditionally used for divination and readings which can answer specific questions or foretell the future.

The Alternation Project collective includes: Julia Kiryanova (Paintings, tapestry, body designs and concept) , Lee Ellickson (mise en scene and concept), Elizaveta Kuzyakova (sound score and performance), Reon Cordova (film compilation), Simone Goslinga (dramaturgy), and performers  Antti Uimonen, Lisa Hofmann, Laura Klinkenberg, Tinka Charmant, Eva van der Zand and Mova BoRee Aske

The exhibition can be viewed from December 8 thru 10, from 2 pm to 5 pm, as well as before and after the performances at 8 pm, and from 9:15 pm to 11 pm.

This project is made possible through the kind support of  Stadsdeel Zuid,  AFK , Prince Bernhard cultuurfonds and stichting Cloud
