About project: << F(r)acture is a project of Aron Rossman-Kiss — artist in residency at IZOLYATSIA. Intertwining a re-activation of some of the Soviet avant-garde’s concerns with the Ukrainian present, the project will explore through a mixture of re-enactment and documentary what a revolutionary practice might mean today. Recruiting participants through open auditions, it will collaboratively create characters blending modernist artists with their own concerns, mixing historical inquiry with self-fictionalising narratives. Documenting these characters’ paths and attitudes towards artistic and political developments in contemporary Ukraine , F(r)acture will seek to explore how a radical heritage can be activated and rendered relevant today.
