Melioration, or 12th Lesson on Post-exoticism
FFTN
3rd Sovetskaya st, 2
04 – 11.10.19
Artists: Anna Andrzhievskaya, Igor Gulin, Arseniy Zhilyaev, Sasha Zubritskaya, Nikita Klen and others.
Curators: Irina Aksenova and Tatiana Danilevskaya

Melioration - is a result of FFTN's two-years work in the contemporary art field of Saint Petersburg. Curators betray the usual tactics of elusiveness and, being inspired by the attitude of the theoretician Irit Rogoff, declare the politics of separation between the representative function of the exhibition space and the function of the actual event itself (curating vs curatorial). However, the project doesn't manifest it bluntly - otherwise, it whispers with the wind, murmurs with the water and rustles with the grass of the local landscape. Finding itself in the middle of the big cultural event, being a sort of "honeypot" for outlander guests, FFTN applies aesthetics and temporality of post-exoticism**, elaborated by French literature tradition (from Franz Fanon to Antoine Volodine). The center and periphery, voices, that represent various cultures and approaches are mixing to mask postcolonial trends, melioration and fertilization (at whose expense?). What eventually should we do to make those planted to bear fruit? To drain or to moisture, to transgress or to build the borders?
