Art review: Can your works qualify for public art?
Vyacheslav Useinov: I assume, yes. Moreover, there are sketches and some insight in this regard. Yet, I have some distrust to government officials and their structure. The reason for this, is an unpleasant experience which I have. Do you understand, that to implement such direction as public art in Tashkent, we need to create an Arts Council, which will be working with the artists and the municipal authorities, helping then in determining the worthy artwork for confirmation. Art community should also be involved into the process of selection. As I understand, the only task of the authorities of all levels— is the development of our government, which should be primarily based on culture. However, they are in the system of ranking and the civil servants acts according to what is said by the civil servant of a higher level.
Art review: Are you ready to give your work to authority of any region or city for a symbolic price? It would be your contribution into the culture of the society.
Vyacheslav Useinov: The psychological effect of exactingness to the place and my work actuates in me, to their emotional and intellectual component in the public space. Who will be determining this area in the public space?
That is why, I think, that is it incorrect if the artist will be bringing relief to the city, which is being funded, for the development. Generally speaking, the artist here— is that person, whose opinion people do not listen to, he exists here like a maintenance staff.
