Kim Snauwaert and Anyuta Wiazemsky are getting married. In addition to an actual marriage, their marriage is a long-term multidisciplinary artistic process in which Kim and Anyuta - as an unconventional couple and as artists - curate their love for each other. They marry, among other things, so that Anyuta would be given a residence status, but with the clear mutual intention to create and maintain a sustainable common life. This somewhat vague notion of ‘sustainable common life’ is the basic requirement for a ‘pure’ or ‘real’ marriage according to the Belgian Law.
The artistic process also involves, in part, a search for how we relate to and define this sustainable common life, as no definition is given of this in the Civil Code. In doing so, they examine the expectations, dogmas and needs of marriage, not only on a personal level, but also on a legal and civil level. They take a closer look at different cultural models of marriage, which present themselves as clearly defined. But are they really?
The whole process is transformed into a multidisciplinary work consisting of performative actions, publications, videos and exhibitions.
