A Number of Contradictions, Ignorances and Oddities
A playful story that meanders along the key moments in the marriage of two artists
On 3 August 2018, artists Kim Snauwaert and Anyuta Wiazemsky got married in Ghent city hall with the aim, among other things, 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 living community". But what exactly does that mean? That question has been central to Kim and Anyuta's life and work ever since. When the two got married, they decided to meticulously document 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 travelled together. The performance is a playful story that meanders along the key moments of their marriage, the road to it and the future. In this way, the makers allow you to look inside their daily lives and their artistic practice, which are inextricably linked and form the personal interpretation of their sustainable community.
