Residency and open studio starting from June 25th.
28.06, 7pm, Conversation about elusive Jewish stories, artistic experiment and the body of the artist
Two-part work by FestivALT’s artist-in-residence Asya Gefter. Part one is a photo-video-sound investigation into once-Jewish worlds in what was formerly eastern Poland, following quite literally in the footsteps of the artist’s muse, the great prewar poet and writer Debora Vogel. The second part is an open studio where Gefter will be living and working throughout the duration of FestivALT, in which she will be creating on the next stage of the work, concerning her own lost and elusive family stories, and the somatic impact of silence and repressed history on her own body.
