Wild Wild Æst
Æther Sofia invited her network to respond with a short video on what we call “Eastern Europe”, and to reveal her personal vision on this matter.
Psycho-geography more than ever plays part in the way we perceive the ever-rolling shift of the con tempo; explorations of both urban environments that emphasizes playfulness and “drifting” inner wishes and visions, revolutionary groups fictions, Marxist and anarchist theory retold, as well, as the attitudes and methods of Dadaists and Surrealists applied nowadays. Psycho-geography as a new guide tool for orientation in geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behaviour of individuals has also been defined as “a total dissolution of boundaries between art and life”. A whole toy box full of playful, inventive strategies for exploring cities, places, mind-sets, traditions; just about anything that takes pedestrians off their predictable paths and jolts them into a new awareness of the landscape.
About Æther Haga
ÆTHER HAGA is a sibling space from ÆTHER SOFIA in Bulgaria and is initiated and curated by artists Marie Civikov and Voin de Voin. Occasionally it will present a selection of artists and will unfold proposals of what intersects along the east/west trajectory based on the already started dialogues at the eastern point. Within this the project strives to make a more physical bond between the continental linear directions, its psycho-geographic potentiality and a bridge less faible, built upon sharing, discussion and exchange. Æther Haga will be programming irregular and shares its digital platform with Æther Sofia. Follow their Facebook page to stay updated.
