JOURNEYS TO THE COUNTRYSIDE. VOLUME TWELVE

130.

130-я акция Коллективных Действий. Карта

At the Pyatnitsky Cemetery in the city of Moscow, V. Zakharov (knowing nothing about the narrative of the action) was photographed beside the stele at the grave of T.N. Granovsky (1813-1855) with a triangle in his hands on which “130” was written in black numerals on a white ground (see photo). According to the action’s plan, a similar photograph with the triangle was to be taken at the stele beside the grave of B.A. Verkhovsky, but due to technical reasons, we were unable to carry this out (for related materials, see here).

On that same day, having arrived at the Zoological museum, we headed to the museum’s hall of bones where V. Zakharov listened to the “replacement soundtrack” (two soundtracks were recorded for the action – the “original soundtrack” and the “replacement soundtrack,” to which Zakharov listened in the museum and in which it was said that Zakharov could listen to the original soundtrack here, on the documentary horizon of the action 130).

Exiting the museum, we moved along Romanov Lane (from 1920 to 1993 – Granovsky Street) and, stopping at the memorial plaques of the 5th House of Soviets (19 in all), photographed Zakharov at these plaques with the triangle in his hands. We took the last of theses photographs on Vozdvizhenka by the monument to F.M. Dostoevsky.

As factography, V. Zakharov was presented with a laminated collage of images of the entomologists G.A. Kozhevnikov and N.N. Plavil’shchikov and the action triangle itself with the number 130.

(The metal triangle measuring 82 cm on each side with the black number 130 on a white ground is a CA object marking the space (place) and time of the CA action 130, an action named according to the numerical order of the list of CA action, which can be seen at the following address: http://conceptualism.letov.ru/KD-ACTIONS.htm

The meaning of the action consists in the activation of place (space) and time as a distinct action event using this triangle with the number “130.”

Wherever this triangle is located  is where the action 130 takes place.

(The action is part of the action triptych 128 (circle), 129 (square), and 130 (triangle).)
