Seed of Pain
Maxim Blax von Piankov
Saturday July 24th at 9 pm
Max Blax is a native of the Urals, self-taught interdisciplinary artist, dancer and explorer of stage and atmosphere.
“The pain of broken crystal. The fragments of a child's heart, who had been shaken by the collapse of the Soviet Union. A child that brought up in an atmosphere of survival and despair. Who’s looking for the fragments of his light in that infinite dark forest resembling human subconscious. If the past is grief, the present lives the echo of that empty forest seeded by pain. Eventually that child will find the seeds of pain and firmly eradicates its plants. Reaching back to his heart and reassembling that crystal of perfection that he is.”
