POWWOW

Site-specific audiovisual performance,

kinetic light sculpture

 

 

 

Saint-Petersburg, Street Art Museum

September, 2014

"Powwow" was performed at the closing of  “Motive for peace” exhibition, which brought  together over 60 works devoted to an anti-war agenda.

40 parallel laser-like beams along the 130 meters of the viaduct ­­symbolized  the dialgue. The powwow.

 

 The sound of analogue synths and drummachines travelled together with the light across the viaduct. Chaotic rythms argued with each other at the beginning, gradually  merged  into one structure, and finally, augmented with more and more new instruments, culminated into one harmonious flow.

 

 

 

 

MY WHALE

Site-specific audiovisual installation

 

You are standing in an empty room. There is no chairs and tables. They were there, but they took them away. There is no monsters from your bad dreams, although, they never were there. You are standing in an empty room, made of little pieces of stardust that carry the emptiness between them.  And while breathing in and out, you feel the movement of the emptiness inside you and that the emptiness is you. At this moment you see that the only things which are absent in the room are the impossible ways of existence. You are standing in an empty room where anything could be placed.

 

Audiovisual installation “Void” is an attempt to visualize the idea of emptiness. Emptiness here is regarded not as an absence of everything, but as an initial state when anything can appear. To see how dark room turns into the Big Bang epicenter a visitor should become “empty”. Every move and sound, captured by sensitive equipment, stops the 360 degrees audiovisual flow around.

“My Whale” is a site-specific installation by Tundra for “Brusov”, a renovated ship, laid up on Moscow river and turned into an art-cluster.

 

There is an impressive space at the front of the ship, with panoramic windshield and hexagonal pattern on the vaulted ceiling, remained from the 80-s, the time, when “Brusov” was constructed in Austria. Standing there gives you the feeling of floating through the reflections of the Krymsky bridge lights on the river, inside a giant whale head. Looking through its eyes, listening to its songs that flow across the brain made of hexagonal cells by the wires hanging down here and there. With some light and sound we brought this whale to life.
