Marshrutki (shared taxis) define the transportation system of many post-Soviet countries: after developing an answer to the mobility demand, when the states were adjusting to a new political and social system, they still outline the landscape of long-distance and inner-city travelling.
Approaching different countries where these networks subsist, the project visually translates how this light and flexible system keeps the societies in a constant movement and which spatial and social transformations it produces.
I engaged in chosen routes in different countries, approaching the travellers and describing the cultural specifics with an immersive practice. I create a mapping of the route with images and stories about those encounters.
"Marshrutkascape #210" was realised during the Künstlerhaus Lukas exchange residency program in collaboration with NCCA (National Centre for Contemporary Art) in Kaliningrad, Russia.
