Interview: Tatsiana Lintouskaya
Luca Curci
talks with Tatsiana Lintouskaya during FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES, second appointment of BORDERS Art Fair 2020, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

Tatsiana was born in Minsk, Belarus, where she attended a high school with arts specialization. After studying international relations and economics, she worked as a diplomat and consultant for several international organizations. In 2007, she moved to Austria to work at the Salzburg Global Seminar where she leads high-level programs on economics, finance and geopolitics. Her work and travels around the world have been a never-ending source of inspiration for her artwork which mirrors her experiences, thoughts, and emotions. She is interested in the role of art as a mirror of life and society which can advance dialogue and create awareness of societal issues. Tatsiana works in acrylics and oil. The recently painted series “A Tale of Cryptocurrencies” deals with the hype around cryptocurrencies, questions its effects on the individual and on society and ponders the future of money in the era of digitalization. Her first solo-exhibition took place on June 21-25, 2019, at Schloss Leopoldskron in Salzburg followed by a group exhibition from September 19 to October 12, 2019, at Gallery Steiner in Vienna.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Tatsiana Lintouskaya
– In my view, art is communication. It can explore ideas and thoughts as well as translate feelings and emotions.

LC – What are you currently working on?
TL
– I have just finished several paintings devoted to Vienna, the city I live in, and I am nurturing ideas for a series of artworks on my country of birth Belarus.

LC – What is your creative process like?
TL
– Since I have a full job and a family, my schedule is very busy, so that I try to use every opportunity to paint. I have lots of ideas and I let them grow and ripen in my head for a while. Then I just sit down and let the creativity flow.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
TL
– My art is diverse but I have several on-going series, for example the series “A Tale of Cryptocurrencies” or the series “Out of Africa” which expresses my fascination with this continent.

LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
TL
– Feedback from a visitor is always welcome and often inspiring as it is part of the communication which my artwork started.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival? In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
TL – The theme of identities is very interesting in the current era of digitalization. I am presenting three artworks from my series “A Tale of Cryptocurrencies” which reflect on the rise of cryptocurrencies and how they reshaping our lives and the social fabric.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us? What do you think about the organization of our event?
TL – I very much enjoyed my cooperation with you in the framework of the Borders Art Festival and I am very grateful for the opportunity to show a selection of my artwork. I would also like to warmly thank all the organizers for the support provided in the run-up to the exhibition as well as for the excellent organization on site.
