Secret Chamber / Тайная Комната (Tainaya Komnata) – Anya Kuts & Ivan Zoloto
Anya Kuts and Ivan Zoloto from Petrozavodsk curated two so-called ‘Secret Chambers’. ‘Secret Chamber’, in Russian Тайная Комната (Tainaya Komnata) is the name they use for the audiovisual events they curate in unexpected, ‘secret’ locations. The Secret Chambers are a never-ending experiment, started in Karelia (North-West Russia) as an attempt to break with the concept of a ‘gig’ and challenge music lovers to find new ways of appreciating sonic art. More than concerts, they are conceived as complete experiences. Previous Secret Chambers took place in an old courthouse, in attics, living rooms of wooden cabins in forests, industrial lofts, desolate beaches, public libraries, cinemas, art galleries, independent venues and bars.
