Main Stella Polare projects have the objective to apply and to develop the concept of the vitaculture to all the spheres of the life. Vitaculture is the joy urgency. Today, Stella Polare is interested at how the vitaculture is executed: people, women and men, society, some particular defined people, letter H in the French language and others.

In Uzbekistan people say « Bolali uy bozor, bolasiz uy mozor ». That means «The house with children is a bazaar, the house without is a cemetery». Uzbek people love children and call them the flowers of life, so where the name of the project comes from.
Within this project, messages are written and a flower is presented next to each statement, the thight or the dream of the child. The number of flower petals represents the age of the child. Since when a person dies, and especially so young, he remains forever young in his memory, naturally as long as the memory of that person lives on. Flowers are inherently ephemeral and fleeting. I wanted to convey precisely the nature of the memory of these children and of course to remind people of the happiness that we, living people today, actually possess, but do not always realize.
« Unrealised future » vidéos séries, exhibited at UNESCO.
Hereby the videos that reflects the unrealised memories, unrealised future of the children dead from in cancer. They are all in différent languages of the world. The form the artist has chosen is blurry as memories in our heads that are not fixed.
With my videos, Stella Polare wanted to show exactly this transition, which is more suitable than ever to memories and unfulfilled dreams. She wanted to make it interactive, so she has chosen that the sound would be recreated at each new diffusion. As during her UNESCO speech the sound of the video was the translation of the messages. This video contains the dreams of the children, the messages are in Chinese, Uzbek, English, French, Spanish, Arab and Osetin languages.
The project “You have a letter”
under the curation of Normurod Negmatov was dedicated to transmitting scelled letters to everyone who comes to the instituions of the art Moulin jaune dans la region parisien (Jeltaya Melcina Slavi Polunina, eto kloun u nego ochen silnaya strategiya schatya) and Aysel gallery in Samarkand. The innovation of this project consisted in that obligation the visitor to read it at home (out of context pf art) in private. The scelled phrase was the message from the ill children «I’m happy». Thus, the message went out of the art context and the message readers became the authors of the phrase, deleting the place of the artiste. The phrase automatically become their own as it starts by «I…» Since he or she read it alone, at the level of physiological reflexes he felt how true it was that he was reading.
Children come to this world from the abstract to the figurative world. At birth, he or she will acquire a name, as well as a vocabulary with specific meanings. The last have more or less the same meaning depending the languages. Living a “figurative” life, the child’s body dies and thus it goes nowhere. The state between the the start of living and the end is expressed in this. The life the ill and dead child could live could live but did not.
