Lasunak

Performance Lasunak (delicacy) took place in National center for contemporary art during the opening of exhibition of vice-chief of the institution. The event gathered many highly ranked managers and experts of
official art scene. The pile of potato was thrown down in front of the speakers like a gift and kind a comic gratitude. Potato is an archetype of Belarusian tradition, the core of peasant economy and the base of local
cuisine. Such image creates a contrast with a pathetic official culture scene that pretends to be contemporary but stays uncritical on the traditionalist basis of soviet era art mixed with romantic nationalism of early
90`s. Lasunak is a type of potato widely used in Belarusian farming.
