Tatiana Sukhareva: Bicameral Mind
FREE ENTRY, LITERATURE & DISCOURSE, ART, FILM & DIGITAL CULTURE
• Days with event
Video Essay Screening & Artist Talk
The video essay “Bicameral Mind” is a part of Tatiana’s larger project, "Inhuman Design," which she started in 2019.
These works delve into the manipulations of human consciousness, investigating how power relations cause mutations that impact entire generations.
This process results in the modeling of both biological and social bodies, hence the name "Inhuman Design."
In her studies, the artist researched various manipulation techniques, one of which is repetition, often used in propaganda. It becomes an earworm or brain worm, which continuously occupies a mind even after it is no longer being played or spoken, and becomes thereby an “echo” of the voice of the bicameral mind.
Tatiana Sukhareva, current MQ Artist-in-Residence is a contemporary artist who lived and worked in Moscow until May 2022. In her recent works she is exploring themes of biopolitics, power relations and the influence of manipulation on public consciousness. Her personal synesthetic experience of grapheme-color synesthesia is also an important part of her practice.
