Trondheim kunstmuseum is proud to present the exhibition Sisterless by the Tatar-Russian artist Yaniya Mikhalina. The exhibition follows her artistic PhD project that revolves around practicing, conceptualizing and imagining feminist and decolonial filmmaking and the ways in which reality represents, produces and distorts subjectivities. The title, Sisterless, comes from the central work in the exhibition, a documentary film about Albina, a young Tatar woman who dreamed of becoming a psychoanalyst. The film is a feminist commentary on the relationships between mental health, contemporary political events and the consequences of post-Soviet displacement and ongoing repression.
In addition, the exhibition presents two video installations dealing with different strategies of working with historical footage in a present tense: Comrades, How Long will You Torment Us? was made shortly after the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine and consists of an edited version of an early 90s TV show that gave place to people all over the newly dissolved country to voice their opinions. In the Volga-Ural Sky is a newly produced work juxtaposing sounds and images from family archives of indigenous people of the Volga-Ural region (Tatars, Miçars, Bashkirs, Chuvash, Udmurt, to name those appearing in the work) with Soviet avant-garde fiction and documentary films’ representation of them.
As such, the exhibition serves as a meeting point between intergenerational traumas, female guilt, colonial temporalities, indigenous womanhood, and expired citizenships.
