Informational DETOX — Stary Oskol, November 20 — December 6
On November 19 the Soap opera project became a part of artistic intervention to the city mall. It was an original idea of Valentina Bykova — curator of Stary Oskol contemporary art centre Free Gallery — to make an international group exhibition instead the clothes store in the shopping centre.
Olga, together with the curator, managed to embody the specifics of the installation of the project. In a dark room, on black walls, only small spots of light illuminated the heroes of the photo series — bars of soap — as is usually the case with performers in the theater. Once in the dark hall of the exhibition, Soap Opera viewers plunged into the atmosphere of silent contemplation of important “characters” of the difficult 2020 and reflections on their experience of isolating and fighting the virus, its consequences and information noise.
