MAASTRICHT.- The Bonnefantenmuseum is presenting the exhibition Rhythm Assignment, with work by the Russian artist Katya Bochavar. Bochavar has wide experience as a curator and director, and in this exhibition she combines her broad expertise with her artistry. The exhibition is taking place as part of the Netherlands-Russia year.

Rhythm Assignment shows a drawing by Sol LeWitt from the museum collection, multiplied with the help of video projections and mixed with Bochavar's geometrical drawings, screens showing video clips of dance movements, and sound machines. The concept of the exhibition is based on the convergence of cultural history and inner development. Katya Bochavar's development has been influenced by Pavel Filonov, one of the artists whose paintings can still be seen until 11 August in the exhibition The Big Change. Revolutions in Russian painting 1895 – 1917. Filonov was one of the leading figures in Russian modernism, and painted in an analytical way. In Rhythm Assignment, Filonov's influence is rendered as a balanced interaction between the ornamental graphic lines, the sounds, the dancers' bodies and the public.

Public as participants
Katya Bochavar uses her knowledge of several art disciplines to involve the public with her art works. Visitors are not only viewers and listeners, but also participants. For instance, there are sound machines in the exhibition that can be operated by the public. One of those machines is the #rhythm combiner drums. By turning it, the visitor can produce a sequence of varied beats that follow the main rhythm, while also determining the rhythm at the same time.

Rhythm Assignment has been curated by guest curator Christina Steinbrecher (artistic director of the Vienna Art Fair) and was created with the assistance of Petr Aido, Dmitriy Morozov, Anna Abalihina and Aleksandr Lobanov. The opening of Rhythm Assignment will take place on Friday 7 June at 17.00, attended by the curator and artist. Everyone is cordially invited to this opening.
