Myvillages’ projects and collaborations in the Russian village of Zvizzhi and the Northern Irish village of Ballykinler/Ballykinlar will feature in the fifth (out of eight) episodes of the International Village Show.
Expect a caravan in the garden, clay sculptures in the vending machine, a pit kiln and solo vocals.
Neither Zvizzhi nor Ballykinlar are nostalgic places. Dominated and torn by either post-communist economies/international art park or post-trouble struggle/ massive British army barracks, both villages have a sense of direct expression and getting on with things that brings them together.
Paddy Bloomer and Phil Hession from Belfast and Olga Gartman from Moscow will be in Leipzig for the opening weekend to talk about working in and with both villages.
