Nonknowledge No No
The Nonknowledge No No performative lecture was the last in a series of lectures on the Gylleboverket platform for contemporary art and film in the vicinity of the Swedish city of Simrishamn and took place in September 2022.
“Time either does not exist at all or barely exists”. But it seems that we don't have time now to think about time anymore. Stop. This thought itself is about time, and we have denoted it by the word Now. How long does it take to read it in such a way that Now matches its meaning?
We found this cassette in Anton's old suitcase abandoned in a cold garage in Minsk for more than ten years. On it, we discovered the master tape of an album, which Anton had been producing for almost two decades since the early nineties. The album was finally mixed to this cassette in 2010 and titled "Billion Yellow Birds." But now the tape crumbles off; the cassette was damaged by freeze and moisture.
Space and Time
Leaving Moscow in the fall of 2018, Marika Krasina and Anton Kryvulia had buried their personal belongings (that could no fit in the plane) in a field at the Moscow River source. After six months, they dug them up and mounted them as a weight for the strings’ tension.
All personal possession of the artists were bounded together and suspended on the six strings as a weight for the tension. The strings were the drivers for the processual performing of the sounds collected and selected by the artists, especially for the event. Six suspended objects formed the playground for performative procedure lasted 6 hours until the installation got broken.
Poverty and Glory
The (Music) Instrument is the electronic version of the Pythagorean monochord. It is extremely simple — a tree branch, two stones, two nails, steel string and a contact microphone. It is made anew every time, immediately prior to the (Music) performance. It is the perfect tool for installing the sound impregnated with overtones. The (Music) Instrument and the sound from it constitute a singular art object, the installation of which in space takes place using special performative practice.
Sound performance, viewed from the perspective of a contemporary art spectator unexpectedly turns out to be a provider of raw musicality. We call it (Music) in brackets.
Music that arose by chance from the fragments of a branch, a stone on a string and an electric organ in the hall of a large tired museum.
