Uldus Bakhtiozina

predrasude i stereotipi! tako poznati svima nama. iz razloga jer nam nisu poznati drugi. mi drugima. oni nama. i tako u krug. ili je reč o spirali? neograničenoj. pa, se ne zna više ni gde je početak. a do kraja bi moglo da dodvede šta? spoznaja? moguća li je? uldus bakhtiozina misli da je ključ u ironiji. i za žene i za muškarce. irony. iron man. ironing man… & woman, 2.

evo ja sam iz srbije i pojma nemam o poreklu njenog imena: uldus bakhtiozina. nije mi ni ruski zvučalo. kada sam kao studentessa bila u njenom rodnom sankt petersburgu ispred isakiejvskog sabora, te prelepe crkve, u crnom grombi kaputu stajao je mladić koji se zvao roman. izgledao je bolje od bilo kojeg junaka svih ruskih romana zajedno i prijateljice i ja smo mu prišle i pitale ga gde se nalazi znameniti isakijevskij sabor. kada smo saznale to što smo i znale saznale smo i da se zove roman. bili smo u rusiji, padao je ruski sneg, bilo je ruski hladno i krenule smo da mu govorimo: “vi rusi ovo, vi rusi ono…” on, elem, nije bio rus, bio je tatarin. (btw, uldus je to po ocu, a po majci je ruskinja i ukrajinka) bila sam tamo kada je junakinja ovog posta, lepa uldus bakhtiozna imala 3 godine. došle smo sa ubeđenjem da u tadašnjoj rusiji perestrojke slušaju balalajke, igraju kazačok i da, da svi loču. i da su svi rusi. roman nam je pokazao nama nepoznatu rusiju, studirao je istoriju umetnosti i radio kao dj, voleo je stinga, znao dobro istoriju svoje zemlje i svog fascinantnog grada, pokazao nam je neka mesta za koje smo prepotentno i ignorantski mislile da ni ne postoje u rusiji. prosto, bile smo neznalice, ljudi najčešće i jesu neznalice. nije ni baš lako čoveku da bude znalac. to zahteva trud. i vreme. i opasnu želju da se nešto pojmi.  zahteva i borbu sa raznim preprekama. unutar i van sebe. ali, da se vratim na uldus, o njoj je ovde reč i o njenoj umetnosti. dolazim iz zemlje o kojoj drugi jako malo znaju i lako im je da imaju predrasude prema njoj, pa mi je iz perspektive mog porekla i mog životnog iskustva ova priča i prijemčiva i razumljiva. i draga na neki način. možda slovenski mazohistički. ili romantično…

zapravo, юлдус бахтиозина, juldus bahtiozina, rođena je 22. jula 1986. (pa, srećan rođendan devojko!)  u tada lenjingradu, a sada sankt petersburgu. studirala je na central saint martins koledžu u londonu. prvi je TED-ov govornik iz rusije. ona je fotograf i vizuelni umetnik. i sjajno barata sa predrasudama, steretipima, ironijom. i vrlo moćno to čini. i duhovito. na šta prvo pomisliš kada čuješ da je neko rus? na matrojške? votku? hladnoću? mafijaše? devojke koje žele da se bogato udaju na zapadu? uldus se sa svime time poigrava. i to radi mudro & šarmantno. provokativno. često su to njeni autoportreti… od 21. godine živi van rusije. london, nepal, indonezija, hong kong…

svet je lep. i šaren. tako je dobro što smo različiti. pa, i po cenu da se ne poznajemo. ako imamo želju da se upoznamo, to je već pola puta…

“but remember, irony is the key, and this is actually to motivate girls to fight for goals, for dreamsand change stereotypes. be brave. be ironic — it helps. be funny and create some magic.” (uldus)

“sometimes, in my project, i would take the painting and give it new meaning and new temptation about it. sometimes, i would compare facial features and playing with words: irony, iron man, ironing man.” (uldus)

uldus, ted,  desperate romantics

“my mission is to keep people developing their brains, not boxing themselves in and always staying awake.” (uldus)

STATEMENT

WE DON’T SEE THINGS AS THEY ARE, WE SEE THEM AS WE ARE

every shot i take is influenced by something, and each photo tells a story. i reference things that are special to me. whether it is an old film, a song, a painting, or a poem. it’s all about telling a story. i am constantly inspired and my way of expressing this is by taking photos, it’s my way of sharing my experiences. there are way too many bland, cold, boring fashion and lifestyle photos out there. my photos try to express something deeper then today’s average trendy photo formula. i make it a point to get away from that. i want to be learning something or feeling something when i’m looking at a photo – so i try to create the same experience with my photography. with my art. with my life! i am deeply inspired with pre-raphaelites , poetry of XIX century, with paganism and russ land fairy tales, at the same time i am very passionate about modernity, media, i love super heroes, especially iron man, i love german language and colored hairs on girls. so, all these little and big things come to me and get to you from me through my art photography! generally my statement is to be free and flow with emotions. i am gaining to bring beauty and positive emotions to people! i live for that! STAY HIGH!  (uldus bakhtiozina)

vogue italia, marzo, 2015: “my life in general can be described in one phrase, ‘analytical spontaneity’, i analyze my surroundings and take spontaneous action”. 

“i realised that it doesn’t matter where you are, what matters is who you are and what you want to achieve” (uldus)

“this boy is a professional dancer, only 12 years old, but at secondary school, he hides his dancing classes and is wearing the mask of brutality, trying to be united with the rest of his classmates like a storm trooper has no personality. but this boy has goals and dreams but hides it to be socially accepted,because being different isn’t easy, especially in russia.” (uldust)

be sure on your wishes

gold fish from russ land series

“i was born in ussr in 1986. my first degree was politics and i dreamt of becoming the first female president in russia, though i still think it’s possible, i will try my way to it from the position of minister of culture, since it has to become contemporary and not so narrow as it is now. as an artist i started at the age of 3 or 4, started from clay sculpture and drawings, experimented with different medias for many years, until 2013 when i narrowed it to photography. within photograpy i placed sculpture made by me, outfits, drawings and outfits – all i have skill for in one medium.” (uldus b.)

“this is nikita, a security guard from one of the bars in st. petersburg. he likes to say, “you wouldn’t like me when i’m angry,” quoting hulk from the movie, but i’ve never seen him angry. he hides his sensitivities and romantic side, because in russia, among guys, that’s not cool to be romantic, but it’s cool to be surrounded with women and look like an aggressive hulk.” (uldus)

i obavezno pročitaj ovaj intervju. http://www.inspiringfolks.com/uldus-bakhtiozina-breaks-stereotypes/

ona je tako inspirativna i zabavna. u onom najpozitivnijem smislu reči “zabavan”.

пленочной фотографии меня в университете не учили. мое «престижное образование в лондоне» (цитирую журналистов) просто очень престижное. меня, как и настоящего рэпера, воспитала улица, только улица была в лондоне. (юлдус)
