A Number of Contradictions, Ignorances and Oddities
A playful narration that meanders through the key moments of Kim and Anyuta's marriage.
On 3 August 2018, artists Kim Snauwaert and Anyuta Wiazemsky married in the town hall of Ghent, partly with the aim of obtaining a residence permit for Anyuta. When they examined the conditions for a legal marriage, one of them turned out to be the creation of a 'sustainable community of life'. But what does that mean exactly? That question has been at the heart of Kim and Anyuta's life and work ever since. When the two married, they decided to meticulously record every step of the process, from proposal to honeymoon.
In A Number of Contradictions, Ignorances and Oddities, the two artists look back on the journey they have taken together over the past years. The performance is a playful narration that meanders along the key moments of their marriage, the road leading up to it and the future. In this way, the makers allow you a glimpse into their daily lives and their artistic practice, which are inextricably linked and form the personal interpretation of their sustainable community of life.
