In 2006/2007 I participated in the program Field Studies – public art in Russian, Scandinavian and Finnish artist in St.Petersburg. It was produced by the National center for contemporary art, St.Petersburg branch and I contributed with my piece Re-arranged Movement (1999).
The performative piece was executed in the passages of the Art Center Pushkinskaya 10 in St. Petersburg.
People are always moving through spaces and levels of consciousness. In the city signs are telling You where to go and how to organize Yourself to others. We are often very well coordinated to meet the demands of the city. Both to make our movements fit economically in this environment and to keep up the feeling that we are free to make individual selections of directions in the city and life.
Movement takes time and effort and, therefore, it’s important to measure the shortest way between two places. That measurement is, however, often deformed by the shifting variables (physical or mental) for city travel.
Showing some slides from the catalog:
Other participating artists in the NCCA – Field Studies project: Lars Arrenius (SWE), Viktoria Ilyushkina (RUS), Année Olofsson (SWE), Anne-Brit Rage and Gunnhild Bakke (NOR), Victor Remishevsky (RUS), Ann Rosén (SWE), Pavel Shururov and Group 33+1 (RUS) and Video artists from Nordic Countries and Russia.

Today I received the catalogs from the project Sixth Sense initiated by the Swedish Church.
Sixth Sense, initiated by the Swedish Church invited 24 artists to do site-specific art works in 23 churches. So one artist for every church. Exhibit scedule 17 May – 2 September

I was amazed they actually did a separate edition in English instead of a bilingual one. The interesting was that the churches were presented also in combination with the artists in this catalog. The overall impression was that the catalog both maintains the easy art reader (not for SITE addicts) but at the same time an interested audience for the history in their area will get some glimpses of the churches in the diocese of Västerås.
I got some copies to sell in English or Swedish, give me a hint of what you like to buy them for.

“.. Инсталляция Томаса Нигрена «Изменяя движение. Rearranged movement»
Государственный центр современного искусства представляет инсталляцию шведского художника Томаса Нигрена «Изменяя движение. Rearranged movement» в рамках проекта «Field Studies/Полевые исследования: современное искусство из Финляндии и Скандинавии».
Томас Нигрен исследует взаимосвязь психологического восприятия движения и реального перемещения в пространстве. Проходя одной и той же дорогой каждый день, мы обычно выбираем самый короткий путь. Но что мы при этом теряем?
