Philosophy of the Encounter (2016–2018) by Tatiana Istomina is loosely based on the story of Hélène Rytman, who was murdered by her husband, the prominent French philosopher Louis Althusser. Althusser’s texts continue to be published and read while Hélène is largely forgotten despite her role in Althusser’s life and influence on his intellectual career. In death, as in life, Rytman remains silenced—an insignificant woman lost in the shadow of her famous husband. Istomina reconstructs this story from Hélène's point of view and explores the implications of these events on Althusser's philosophical theories. Never before seen together in its entirety, Philosophy of the Encounter is a multi-media body of work consisting of sculptures made in collaboration with Canadian artist Mona Sharma, a puppet-performance staged for video, works on paper, and an artist book.
