“FLOWERS OF DEMOCRACY”

MANIFESTO 23.11.2015

We dream of love, respect and honest equality. A world where democracy is built upon wisdom, professionalism and empathy. We want peace in our homes, in the cities that we share and the world we so fortunately have been given.

“FLOWERS OF DEMOCRACY” – is an artistic ACTION, a salvation, a cure!

Macho culture comes fear of sensibility, hiding behind the power of muscles, reality before, today symbolic, giving man without discussion for so long the right to build and created an unequal society. We are all part of our creation but invisible and considered weak are some. So with art we break this ignorance, and bring wisdom out from darkness.

“FLOWERS OF DEMOCRACY” – WE carry the womb of democracy. We are an open, an anonymous association of artists, feminists, women, hope soon men.

What is it about? The OBJECTIVES [I’m asking the question]/ The Objectives [I’m questioning]

Is the artist supposed to match the idleness of the exhibition halls?

Is the artist supposed to be sellable and solvent?

Is the artist supposed to express herself/himself staying out of political context?

Is she/he a slave of the aesthetic preferences of the elite?

Is an artist a slave to trendy colors/shapes/ideas?

Is an artist a corporate employee to the world?

Can the artist buy opportunities for money just like any representative of other profession can?

Does the Artist drink [blanc de blancs] to the freedom [to choose]?

Does the artist eat in the name of love to humanity and in order to sacrifice her/his ego?

 

The METHODS [I use to ask the question]/ The METHODS [I use to question]

I exhibit myself, the copy of my body, the symbol and the receptacle of my Ego.

I create the sculptures/clones of the artist – hunter for glory, hunter for money, hunter for the spot on the wall of the influential Collector.

I’m turning the [visible] husk of an artist into an object.

I complete the modeling of Me and finish it if with the shape in action.

I disown my Ego. I’m killing the artist craving for capitalistic benefits and self-admiration/narcissism.

I exhibit myself.

I kill myself.

I finish myself cause.

I’m a soap bubble.

I am the war and aggression against the benefits we were forced to crave for.

I’m the world in black and white.

I am a symbolical MAN who seduced the Woman in the space of destruction.

 

WHAT IS IT MEANT FOR? RESPONSE TO THE WOMAN/MAN

This symbolical death of mine is the new way to establish myself as an artist.

From this moment onwards the major space of my creative narration is the street.

Yet, material remains same – the body.

The last opposition\confrontation is the confrontation of the body and borders.

I am a feminist movement, weaved from like-minded ones, from solidarity and synergy of ideas and energies.

All the money and other material and non material dividends are going to be donated in order to satisfy needs of the avant-garde feminist art of Ukraine.

Today such projects as Flowers of Democracy and Body And Borders are aiming to encourage vast movement among women and men who realize the burden of their symbolical roles in modern Ukrainian (as well as worldwide) society.

Today we are supporting, developing and assisting to materialize the art projects of active feminist art groups

We ain’t artists, we ain’t leaders, anyone can become us.

WE ARE WOMEN.WE ARE MEN. WE ARE SISTERS AND BROTHERS. WE ARE SISTERS AND BROTHERS.

We are the group of feminists. We are for freedom. We are for love.

We’re out of the borders of destructive discourse demolishing the unity/union of woman and woman, man and woman, woman and man, men and woman, women and man, women and men.

We’re out of frames which are demolishing solidarity.

We’re out of frames of ideologies, suppressing personality.

 

POST FACTUM

I dying in plaster like a man in his armor waiting for the battle to begin.

I creat the body of the woman as the object of desire, as the symbolical point of surrender, as the banner of war.

Destroy  yourself – Destroy the Object.

VIVA THE SUBJECT. VIVA THE SUBJECT. VIVA THE SUBJECT. VIVA THE SUBJECT. VIVA THE SUBJECT

Change the objective of your true path in the name of love, not destruction.

Burn down the banners [of war] and may the timeless peace prevail in you!

Woman, Man, create the FEM-UTOPIA for us.
