No Translations

Communication nowadays is the principle way to get into the sphere of public interests and deep-seated life fundamentals of an artist have been long ago forgotten in striving for the “fame”. This problem has been eroding brains for so long that the necessity arose to analyze the process itself and the best way to analyze, is to clash things and concepts which could not be concurred.    

Thereby we would like to suggest a theme of language contacts, not only in linguistic context, but to explore language of arts and their interaction which could give a chance to delve  deeper into our existence.


In “ … “ – no translations Project we are interested in art linguistics, complexities of translation from one language to another, intersections and parallels. And also everyday heroism of their creators. In other words:  


“Harmonious sounding of languages of art once have been overcome by avant-garde casted doubt on centuries-old apologetics of synthesis, affirmed poetics of dialogue, coexistence of plural artistic intuitions as a new form of interaction. Since then interspecific isolation has been growing intense while norms of speech have been consolidating even more intimate circle of names. Today’s culture space is an extreme point of that isolation: the number of languages in it corresponds to the number of authors. Individual lexicon that denies all the other ways of expression becomes a measure of success. And the brighter this lexicon is, the more semantic density bears the author’s gesture, the harder is the way to learn it. Strategies of autonomy make artist to permanently fight for obstacle building and overcoming – that everyday heroism on the border-line of hermeticism and communication.


Viewer’s orientation on that territory is no more a subject of a sensual game but an unsolvable intellectual puzzle generating random numbers. Summarizing of chaotic signals does not render the whole, in a row of texts the sense of art space itself is getting lost. Unraveling those codes is only possible with deliberate collision of species, genres, objects and conceptions existing in different planes, destroying sterility of existence by forced crossing. Taking away operational limits and modeling the situation of a dialogue inside the society the project reconstructs the broad culture field, drawing in its scopes the artist and the viewer, outlining the ways of communication between them. In that discording forum of messages the keys for catching and unraveling of individual codes through their polyphonic union are being crystallized” Tatyana Malova.

About the organizer

International Culture Project «Art-Residence» is a space, uniting several directions of art:

         •        Visual art

         •        Music

         •        Dance


In the framework of the International Culture Project «Art-Residence», artists, choreographs, musicians of different directions from Russia and other countries are able to meet each other, share their experiences, work together and present joint ideas, which exist on the intersection of different genres of art.

Our objective is to collide concepts of the artists who belong to the same genre as well as to different genres of art, and to identify their unifying link.
