The performance will take place in a cell-like space and draws on elements of collective memory to create an engaging experience for the audience. Maria Gvardeitseva explores official and individual memories of wars and traumatic events. She offers visitors to join a so-called memorial table as a space of transforming grief and sorrow, and a dialog with the past. What new taboos and what new minefields of memory will emerge?

In the upcoming project at Fitzrovia Gallery in London «5-Minute Bedtime Stories», Maria Gvardeitseva explores the transformative potential of fairy tales to cope with the pain of divorce and separation. In the installation, you discover how stepping outside traditional norms and violating societal expectations can lead to new possibilities and refreshed perspective on life. And a variety of possible "happily ever afters."
