Museum of Modern Art
"Museum of Modern Art, city of Ekibastuz. Open".
In general, modern art museums in the Central Asian region are rather tough. They have their benefits in that they allow artists to emulate partisan art aesthetics. If such museums should crop up, then they are most likely to be spaces for participatory art and of what we may call modern art, nothing remains. And yet of an evening or on the weekend I want to “hang out” somewhere, reflect a little about what is happening with me and my environment, see, make memories, find like-minded people. The following solution may be proposed – we should build the museum ourselves, erect it anywhere in the city or in a few places. Of an evening or at the weekend we should take a stroll to that place, wherever it may be.

In order to build a museum, you need paper, a felt-tip pen, a standard matchbox and superglue. The recipe for its construction is thus: take the matches from the matchbox, cover the writing on the box with white paper and sign "Museum of Modern Art". Take yourself to the very place in which you plan to construct your museum. Glue the boxes with the inscription to a wall, a wooden table, whatever it may be, with superglue. Inside the box, you can place at your discretion an object, a photocard, a note and so on and so forth. Visit your museum periodically and share information about its opening (optional).

Workshop yourself

Stump 1, 2, 3, 4

How to make architecture models on potato scale – this is a workshop model that I often conduct. I offer step by step instructions on how one can do it by themselves. For now, I am working with a draft that needs development, but the idea is to produce something that will resemble instructions for DIY architecture, how you can produce architectural models by cutting potatoes and attaching them with toothpicks: a basic material can yield surprising results which are approved by professional architects. This method was used in an Israeli school of architecture, in Almaty and so on.

Kitchen Landscapes
The face of a world in self-isolation has forced us to look at the world of household objects and items in a new light, uncovering within them before unseen thought and meaning. The work brings us back to the question of self-identity in the context of a socio-economic crisis, universal globalisation, digitalisation, and even describes the author’s own personal fears of future change.

Coronavirus pause
Covid 19 drove everyone into a personal pit - we have been drawn to our beds and chairs, we have been drawn to our mobile phones and laptops, and only in this way can we continue to communicate and connect with the outside world.

Chirologia (or Natural Hand Movements)
A series of 6 drawings

Upon entering a public toilet in recent times, a sign detailing “Hand Washing Routine” catches your eye. I was shocked when I realised that I had never washed my hands properly. Aside from the “Routine”, the drawings caught my interest. For some of the instructions, the attached drawings did not correspond with the text. I remembered that I had once seen some hand drawings by John Bulwer, an English doctor in the seventeenth-century. One of his scientific works Chirologia is a collection of drawings of hands and a description of gestures. For Bulwer, Gesture was the universal character of Reason, “Transient Hieroglyphics”. The hand “speaks all languages, and as universal character of Reason is generally understood and known by all Nations, among the formal differences of their Tongue. And being the only speech that is natural to Man, it may well be called the Tongue and General language of Human Nature, which, without teaching, men in all regions of the habitable world doe at the first sight most easily understand”. I redrew Bulwer’s drawings, and saved the description of the gestures but added personal hygiene tools and the logic of instruction. And when you know, what a universal hand gesture means, washing your hands is much more pleasant‼!

How to Solve Problems
How to Solve Problems Examples

1. Think about your biggest problem at present
2. Think about it carefully from all perspectives. Try to capture its essence and express it in one word.
3. Write down/sew/cut out your problem word anyway that comes to mind. What is important is to end up with a physical, and not digital, object.
Destroy the word in any manner that comes to mind. Post the result using the hashtag #problemsolving if you desire.
Life is a sequence of problems. Sometimes they pile up in snowball fashion, other times they follow each other smoothly by level of complexity. When we find respite from our problems, we take up hobbies, listen to our loved-ones and even for a moment become the best versions of ourselves. And then the problems find us again. This is the order of the system; we cannot change the system and perhaps the system need not be changed. However, each person has their vices – problems which may never been solved and only come to the forefront or fade into the background. BUT! Now exists a clear algorithm, the instructions are attached below. In truth, not all problems can be solved this way, but in any case, it is worth trying to reconcile the problem even a little.

The story of a real-life Eton-schooled cannabis dealer, who spent lockdown 2020. This character, depicted with a leopard head, sat for 5 hours minimum in his bathtub and reading conspiracy posts by US tofologist, Abbie Richards. The piece's atmosphere oozes with laissez-faire epicureanism and glam rock decadence. The artist's own avatar of the rabbit, appears as both observer and partaker in this degenerative lockdown slothfulness.

Transcendental Meditation
Meditation is not an exclusively religious practice or philosophical exercise, it can even become an artistic act. Sitting or standing, it is even possible to practise meditation in movement. It is enough to read even just once the text for it to channel the feelings of each person in a certain individual direction for each person. By memorising what is read at the level of physiological sequence, a person receives a tool for psychoregulation. Using this tool, you can expand the boundaries of your consciousness, which can help you cope with panic or understand your limitations.
Text for Readings
The world is not going crazy, the world is not rolling anywhere, the world is changeable and unpredictable. The world you thought it was is not the world, even what you have not yet imagined the world to be, is not the world. The world is not something you can know, the world is something you feel, the world is something you can mull over but only in vain. There is no usefulness in the world. Usefulness is something you can mull over. The world is not a field, not an expanse, not a continuum of space and time. The world is a place we can feel with our nerves, the world is a dead end of the endless networks of our finite nerves.

Escape. Instructions are unavoidable. As a way of conveying the best example of a given action, they can be extremely important to ensure occupational safety, proper behaviour in everyday life, mastery of technology and so on. But at the same time, we are entering – and in truth are already living – in the era of deepfakes, cyber-attacks, phishing and persistent spam. In addition to “rubbish” fake news, we consume a double-edged product, tiptoeing the line of “useful” and “useless” in the form of new technologies, the result of which is unpredictable, like blockchain or artificial intelligence.

Separating truth from lies, half-truths and half-lies, a scientific hypothesis from the cosmological narrative, reality from the matrix, clarity from dreams, is becoming more and more complicated, more and more costly. The resources of time and space are tapering and depleting. But information technologies are developing – there are a lot of answers, too many, even. In this environment of an abundance of answers, can we now formulate a question? In the midst of a crisis in the mass media and the usurpation of information by small groups, the instructions simply stop working, because there are too many of them and they have too many directions, including directions that stand diametrically opposed. We have an innumerable amount of information about the causes and consequences of various phenomena, ranging from domestic, criminal, political, to the scale of a planetary crisis and catastrophe, causing the instructions multiply and also contradict each other. Monopolists of information and their information spreaders rely on a civilizational technological restriction. We see that the monopolists are not interested in clarifying the situation. We, ordinary consumers, receive an endless stream of instructions, which leads us to the verge of a crisis and the ontological loss of direction... Complete disorientation. Perhaps it is the totality of such disorientation that becomes the real starting point in a world of new hopes... АЦ © 20210527

Air Conservation
My artistic instruction for action calls all Bishkekans in the summer season and in the midst of preparations for the winter to begin conserving air. On weekends, vacation days, when traveling to mountainous areas, to Lake Issyk-Kul, you have to bring glass jars with a lid, draw air into the jars and seal them. You can also preserve leaves, stones, branches, a handful of mud together with the air. For every taste and colour, I advise you to preserve air from different localities. They say the high-altitude air from Ala-Archinsky helps a lot with colds in winter - instead of a jar of raspberries, it is better to open such a jar of Ala-Archinsky air and breathe it in. I remember last winter, when we could not open the windows due to heavy smog in Bishkek, with the same air that had been circulating in the apartment for weeks, one evening we gathered the whole family at the table and opened one of the cherished jars of air from Kegeti. We inhaled, charged up, and cheered up. Among all of the steps, it is important to mark the date of preservation and the place of origin on each jar, as well as to store the conserved air in a cool, dark place. Plastic cans for air conservation are not suitable. This year we tried to preserve the air from the spring in the Oak Park, in winter my daughter and I really miss walking in the Oak Park and in the coming cold weather, when we are overcome by nostalgia of our walks together, we will take out our jar, we will remember, and we will look forward to the spring with great impatience.
