Alisa Oleva Artistic Residency and "Walk-Shop"

organized by IZOLYATSIA

April 2–28, 2019

Mariupol, Ukraine

Alisa Oleva is a young Russian-born artist based in London. She works with participatory art, urban soundscapes and interactive walking tour/performances called walk-shops. As she has a strong interest in post-industrial cities and alternative mapping of the city-space she investigated the social and political landscape of city Mariupol, which is situated close to the conflict territory in Ukraine. She organized a series of walk-shops for local citizens (a lot of them are refuges from occupied territories) and created an alternative map of city-culture.
