Alexandra Dementieva in Venice and Brussels
Alexandra Dementieva‘s work can be seen in two exhibitions in the upcoming days.
The touring exhibition CYFEST-12 will visit Venice on the occassion of the Venice Biennial. The ID. ART:TECH EXHIBITION is dedicated to the ID as a phenomenon with a wide scatter of meanings – from the term in psychoanalysis (id) to the document that certifies one’s identity (ID). The show is situated around what ID represents in the world of people and things, what new meanings come to life when they interact and what this leads to.
Alexandra Dementieva contributes with the video installation Twin Depths (2018). The video was recorded during the residence/ exhibition at Alexander Gallery, Roze, Montenegro.
Most of the Earth’s surface is covered with water. Water constitutes 60% of the human body and 80% of the brain. We all “emerged” from water, and this fact is stored in the depth of our genetic memory. In her media installation Twin Depths, Alexandra Dementieva invites us to become explorers and return with her to “our element” and, taking familiar objects with us, settle in the watery realm, forgetting about millions of years of the evolution of the human species. With the aid of live video from a camera installed in the sea, all the attempts to return under the water were recorded and displayed in real time.
