glasha-dima-studio-murmanskThe Murmansk based artists, Glafira Severyanova and Dmitry Novitsky, are in Kirkenes at Pikene på Broen’s residency program, BAR International. The duo is working on a project that will be a part of the visual art exhibition during Barents Spektakel 2015. With a humorous touch, the artists dig deeper into our perceptions of the other. How do we view our neighbours across the border?

During Barents Spektakel 2015 Glafira Severyanova and Dmitry Novitsky will be showing their own cross-border survival – which opens up for broader reflections upon gender roles, history of religion and collective memory. How essential are these differences? Are we really so different?
