EXPOSITION “AURA OF SCENOGRAPHY”

Student Section PQ2015

Aura of Scenography

“Aura” is the key word of my PhD research. This term has already been used before in the work of philosopher Walter Benjamin as well as in the work of theorist and architect Peter Eisenman. In my research I define “aura” as the concept/ essence/ base of scenography. Every scenographer (consciously or unconsciously) forms the answer to the questions “What is a scenography” and “What is its aura” while creating the scene. Pragmatists could call it the original style of the Artist. In this short text I am not trying to persuade you or explain my theory. The only thing I want is to show you the importance of my research.

How does aura arise? Aura is present in every piece of art. It is created by its author during the process of creation. It is a key to author´s way of thinking about scenography, his way of seeing the world, his taste, education etc. It is the sign of work’s authenticity as well as of author’s honesty. It seems unnecessary to be dealing with aura in particular, because it does arise or does not arise anyway. And that is true.

I started to be dealing with aura purely for my personal reasons. I wanted to legitimize my whole creative work as “ascenographic”. While I am designing architecture, scenography in theatre, movies and various events, as well as by designing interiors and graphics, I apply the same individual method tomy work. Let’s say it is scenographic method of work. Then everything what I do could be called a scenography. I would own a method of how to work “in a scenographic way” and I could even start to be teaching it.

But instead of “producing” new scenographers, I would be “producing” only the copies of myself. Because it was not my answer, but my question that helped me to become a scenographer.

The research of education in scenography at KS VSMU as well as the searching for aura as the important part of this research. The confrontation of auras from the past, present and future can be found in the premises of Kafka’s house. What is actually a scenography?

It’s a political game, and what will be installed… is now unclear like the weather at that time. The beginning of summer.
