A.Klinav: Partizan — the mental body of every Belarusian

Karatkevich: Klinov Arthur was born in 1965 in Minsk, finished construction faculty of the Polytechnic Institute. Arthur, when you started to draw?
Wedge: You know, in the book I am writing about it too. There is such a maxim — "as a kid I did not want to be an astronaut, and wished to become a mask." It’s true. I basically wanted to be a painter of early from the youth, the only thing I wanted to be not just an artist, and avant-garde artists, for some reason I like that word — garde. And of course, I started to draw very early, but his first work of harsh I think painting "Bane pioneer." She was once quite famous in the country — it is such a genre scene, as a pioneer of the second on the school patio pachykav knife.
Karatkevich: What do you garde?
Wedge: Then, as a child I did not realize it was just the perfect wording, and at the moment it is determined in the world such a concept as contemporary art. This is an art that is experience, is looking for is ahead of cultural search to develop a new mental product.
Karatkevich: And what is the fate of the painting "Bane pioneer"?
Wedge: Unfortunately, it is not me. She just did not show a back — I do not even remember how exactly. She just disappeared.
Karatkevich: Every day in our "Night Primer" sound excerpts from your novel "Small road book Township Sun." Explain to our listeners: city, sun, sleep — that determines the title of this book?
Wedge: You know, statistically, Minsk — one of the most nyasonechnyh European cities. I remember that the sunniest city in Europe — it seems to Marseille. In Minsk, sunny days falls — I do not remember the number — well, a little much for a year. Because, of course, it’s not meant physical sun. Here the sun faster inteligibelnae, mental. Naturally, this is a determining factor in all the same dream. Indeed, in principle, Sun City — a monument utopia. A utopia has a chance to have a chance to be embodied in one case — in the minds of people when she put them down in such a sweet dream in Mroyu they perceive as reality.
Karatkevich: We were in charge of "Freedom Night" about the presentation of your book in Minsk, and here’s a quote from the book: "City of Happiness perish but remained beautiful and nowhere is like aesthetic design — Solar City of Dreams." We conducted a survey in Minsk and asked its inhabitants — that their city of dreams …

WedgeI wanted to start with what it means for me the city of the sun. In principle, everyone has their own Sun City — is his childhood, this sweet memoir of his youth. As for the statements that were made in the survey — it is clear that the City of Dreams, Sun City — this is what is missing: some tools, some something else. But I personally Mroyu return to a time when all the people in my life were still alive.
KaratkevichAll these current restructuring in the center of Minsk, relocation with Karl Marx — somehow they will change your perception of Minsk?
Wedge: Certainly, this is something I have long expected and feared — that sometime in Sun City will feral capital. Felt that it was time. I am afraid that in 10-15 years the image of the sun will be Township totally different from the present, or how we remember it 10-20 years ago. But at least my last small contribution that I had to take it off at the last moment, when he still had the atmosphere, and to translate it into a visual poem, photo album "Sun City" and verbalize this city in his book.
Karatkevich: Works of Arthur Klinova exhibited in France, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, Great Britain, Lithuania, Hungary, Russia, Poland and the United States. In Germany, published in translation into German language book. What is your concept was less understood in zabugornyh countries, and that the most?
Wedge: The concept was all because no misunderstanding with the European audience I have not seen. Maybe just here, in Belarus, will be less understanding than there, because for foreigners is just lovely legend wonderful myth. Do not hurt them these wounds Russian past. Belarus harder. Sun City — a legacy that we have left from utopia. Naturally, it has nothing to do with culture or Sarmatian knights majestically Duchy of Lithuania. And this — the patient perception of the concept of point Township Sun. But I personally would like to see Sun City was associated not only with the Russian past, and was perceived as a luxury monument the human dreams, efforts to make the perfect society, which, unfortunately, never ever will be implemented.
KaratkevichArthur, you still issue the magazine "pARTisan". If the situation in Belarus has changed — would revive democracy, renewed national revival — would you change the title of the magazine?
WedgeUnder no circumstances. Partizan — is a long-standing tradition of this land, it is not depending on the current political situation. After all, "partisan" as I once led — is the mental body of every Belarusian, because in every Byelorussian he sits — 5, 10, 100 percent. It’s just a tradition of this land.
Karatkevich: Who are you fundamental and defining policy in the history of Belarus — in the past and at present?
Wedge: In the past history for me principled politician is necessarily Kastus Kalinowski. For me it is — the quintessence of Belarusian partisan, its traditional incarnation. The current policy is not so simple … In the current Belarusian situation, I would like to refer to a very fundamental political project project "Culture". For while Belarusians do not understand themselves as a civilization, as they went out and brought myself — none democratic political project is not feasible. And to do this may assist only culture — no political party fails to do so. Tags: city, Minsk, wedges, sun, partisans
