Andréa Stanislav is based in New York City, and splits her practice between St.Petersburg, Russia and Bloomington, IN. Ms.Stanislav’s hybrid practice spans sculpture, immersive multimedia installation, video and public art.
I would plan to work on a new multi-channel immersive video installation at the Narva Art Residency — Learning how to Levitate (in Exile) (working title). I would plan to complete location shoots at particular location in Narva, including the theater space within the residency — paired with my personal memories of Narva and actions from 2019.
I would also plan on conducting interviews through a series of “video portraits” with a group of eighty-year old female best fiends, I met in 2019 in Kohtia- Jave, remembering their friendship, loves, losses and survival in one place — and their sense of humor. I would include my own personal story of love and loss intermixed with the stories of then four female finds — connecting the past and present through a poetic visual and spoken narrative — and with a supernatural science fiction sensibility that would further reveal in the third act of the video.
