Zhanna Gladko

  • artist

Artist.

Works with the help of various media with the theme of gender in the context of current feminist theories. All the artist's works, through the strategy of constructing ambivalent images, are aimed at rethinking/deconstructing large-scale concepts such as gender politics and patriarchy, religion and culture, the art system and society. At the same time, Zhanna Gladko profanes and at the same time actualizes/strengthens the topics, including with the help of the strategy of researching topics through private experience. So, in order to criticize the patriarchal system in Belarus, the artist creates a series of self-portraits that re-actualize many painful topics or creates a private collection of objects and documentation of actions that overestimate the conflict and relationship between Zhanna Gladko and her father (Inciting Force project).

The Inciting Force project has multiple continuations and transformations and addresses not only the personal experience of the artist, but also criticizes the patriarchal symbolic figure of the “father”, which makes it one of the most articulated feminist projects in Belarusian art.

2012

A personal project of the artist Inciting Force was presented at the Ў Modern Art Gallery. The project was entirely devoted to the analysis of the relationship between the artist and her father. On screens specially built in the gallery, items from the family archive, personal belongings of the father, as well as created works in the form of a personal museum were exhibited. Zhanna Gladko presented dozens of works at the exhibition: children's photographs and videos showing how her father teaches her how to shoot a gun, fish and drive a car; documentation of the action for which she empties her father's hunting cartridges, pouring gunpowder out of them; a textile and audio work where she destroys the verbs in the instructions left for her by her father; self-portraits in father's clothes and much more. One of the hidden goals of the exhibition was the artist's attempt to provoke strength not only within herself, but also in her father, in order to overcome the crisis in relations together.

Beginning 2015

The Inciting Force project took an unexpected turn when the artist's father destroyed her piano, which she played as a child. Zhanna Gladko exhibited an installation that included a video recording of the destructive act, voiced by surviving children's audio recordings of playing this instrument, as well as the details left from it and a table made by her father from the wooden parts of the piano.
