Artist "archivist" Tanel Rander dug into the works of Anthropologies of Space at the Baltoscandal festival in order to somehow record the anthropological moments of Daria Khrystych, Liis Vares, Bohdana Korohod and Inga Salurand.
How to archive an experience? When is the archive complete? Archive as a separate work, what will become of the original? These questions are asked by me, the writer.
Summer 2022, Baltoscandal. Daria, Bohdana, Inga and Liis diving in the public and private spaces of the city of Rakvere; to find traces of thought, of memory, traces of traces; to look at and draw attention to the spaces that people have created for their well-being. Have we created something for being well?
Abandoned grill bar. The sun is at the zenith. In front of a shopping centre, one man chasing another with a hammer. Mediaeval crusaders pass by dragging child slaves behind them. Kilo of strawberries 4.50. Tanel arrives. We share a small apartment built in late Soviet. We don't speak, we are separated by two doors. This is what I, the current writer, remember.
Summer 2022, Rakvere.
