ALL GREAT DEEDS AND ALL GREAT THOUGHTS HAVE A RIDICULOUS BEGINNING. GREAT WORKS ARE OFTEN BORN ON A STREET-CORNER OR IN A RESTAURANT`S REVOLVING DOOR. ALBERT CAMUS
ZARYA ARTIST / MIKHAIL CHUVAKIN (CHANSY)
From 8 November to 4 December 2022, the first guest of the revamped Zarya Artist Residency will be Vladivostok-based artist and curator Mikhail Chuvakin (Chansy, speorls). On 26 November at 17:00, he will host an artist talk in the Zarya CCA cinema hall, where he will discuss his practice and contemporary trends in printing.
Mikhail makes graphic art and explores various printing techniques, decoding verbal symbols into visual imagery and creating a signature system of symbols. He also supports other young graphic artists in Vladivostok: he curates group exhibitions and is planning to start collaborating with local (and not only) creatives through his independent publishing house Fun is Over Press. For his Zarya residency project he is planning to assemble a light installation based on his signature system of symbols.
