АННА БРОШЕ | ANNA BROCHET

The project «Relations. A pantheon of school heroes»
Place: school, a class of the literature, Shiryaevo

...However, there were “Hun resistant” works by virtue of the fact that Hunnishness was programmed by authors themselves. So, in Anna Broche “Relations” rowdiness became a morphogenetic moment. In a literature class of the village school she made an installation of writer portraits, which usually decorate walls. All of them were connected with black arrows painted on a wall. Relations are traced not by literature influences but, like with Harms, by personages. They are a sort of neighbors in a writer house. Since, during studying writers regenerate from characters of compositions to something homely, everyday, schoolchildren poke fun at them as at their friends by painting some funny details on portraits. Zhukovsky becomes an alien, Andersen weeps and lets snots out, Gofman and Blok ornamented in such a way that they turn into Pushkin. In their argument to be Pushkin Gofman wins; then, following the arrow Blok is spit over with a giant ink blot on his face. And here is a company of “Philanderers”, women favorites: Lermontov with traces of lipstick on his cheek and even himself is a bit womanish with his lips painted in scarlet; brutal Mayakovsky smokes two cigarettes at once – with a small smooch of Lili Brik on his cheek; Yesenin has got a bold lipstick kisses on his both eyes, at the same time they are associated with shanties after punch-out.

Generally, if after September 1 they will get additional doggy ears, Stalin's moustache, blind men's glasses and other public relations, Anna is not going to be disappointed.
