UNDEALING | exhibition-performance by Olga Pogodina
Olga Pogodina – costume designer, NIKA National Film Award nominee, who took part in the work on films and TV series: “Driver for Vera”; (director Pavel Chukhrai, “Fool”, “Master” (director Yuri Bykov, “Father” (director Ivan Solovov), “Forty” (director Alexander Galibin), “Gromovs” (director Alexander Baranov) and many others.
Stories by Olga Pogodina – these are short observations from life, reflections on love, loneliness, creativity. The artist's gaze picks out from the environment what we often do not notice; pulls out and, as it were, places it under a magnifying glass. These stories, like underpainting in painting, set the form, volume, direction for further filling. But each viewer can hear and see something of their own in them.
Olga talks about what excites and excites her in life, what she wants to share with the viewer and can find a response in him.
Small sketches are not related to the plot, but are pronounced in the first person, — author. On stage – a minimum of props, and graphic works that are mobile in space serve as decoration. Tempo and rhythm are created by music – well known classic. But sometimes music becomes a “protagonist”.
Olga – not an actress; not a member of a literary, theatrical or musical circle. The performance has no director, – except the author.
According to the curators of the exhibition-performance, «Underpainting» – this is an art innovation, an incredibly interesting creative experiment, which Olga Pogodina was inspired by friends, listeners of her audio stories.
