as part of a special project of the VII Moscow International Biennale for Young Art «Support Group» in Cube.Moscow
Visitors find themselves on the playground. They have figurines in the form of hares and a field drawn according to the plan of the exhibition space. The artist created this work as part of the art community beznazvaniia, reflecting on the experience of self-organization, local artist-run spaces and collaborations of young artists with institutions and major projects.

ONE TO TWELVE
February 29, 2020. Exhibition in an empty small building in the forest. In one room is the text of the Paris Agreement of the 2015 UN Convention on Climate Change, a conference table and name cards for the months of the year. In another room, two blocks of ice with the famous Latin expressions Memento Mori and Carpe Diem are melting.
One to twelve is an emergency meeting on environmental threats, an unscheduled twelve-month-major summit. The dramatic tale "Twelve Months" of the Soviet writer Samuil Marshak found a global context and changed the plot. In time when people can’t help themselves we need a miracle.
KINGDOM OF ANIMAL
The threat of extinction prompts rare species of animals to restore and maintain their shape, to search for new safe and inaccessible territories. So,
in a building abandoned by construction crew 10 years ago, where sunlight and rainwater penetrate to and where the wind brings plant seeds to, species found shelter that have lost in their usual habitats.
Kingdom of Animals is a work about the possibility of abiogenesis and meeting with a changed life form, fragile, unstable, but material.
with Maxim Amelchenko
On the veranda of an abandoned building, where rainwater collects, an additional wall was built, a springboard was installed and lanes for swimming were organized. The depth of the pool is not more than 10 cm.
The closer to the side, the more a surge of strength in your arms and legs. A few breaths remaining before the end of the lane. Something glides over the body, clings, tries to hold. The heart skips a beat. The air does not end. There is no water around. Knees and elbows are hitting the floor.
MARKING THE PLACE
Living in any place is closely related to its change: puting of personal stuff, rearrangement, decoration. The desire of harnessing the external environment often does not correlate with the capabilities of the person or the legal norms in force in a particular territory.
Taking the use of a signal tape makes it possible to structure the space. The protective properties of the tape make the insertion elements impermeable. The tape forms architectural elements, which become part of the environment.
Road markings inform citizens about the traffic patterns, attract attention, warn of danger. Erased areas are weak spots in the city. The gap is the vulnerability. In the city, where Olga Rozanova lived and worked, only a few people are familiar with her work and there are not places of her activity indicated on tourist routes. The most famous painting by Rozanova, Green Stripe, is one of the most important works of the Russian avant-garde. This work is an attempt to cure this city.
On the way from Rozanova’s House (Vladimir, Museynaya street, 10) to the venue of the Festival of contemporary arts Art-Subject (Vladimir, Sacco and Vanzetti street, 50) the artist painted green over all the space of the roadway where the marking for pedestrian traffic had been erased.
I DON'T REMEMBER ANYTHING ELSE
Plaster casts are made from the furniture that composed the environment of one house. Several years of my life are related to it. Although, I rarely went there. The positioning of objects in space completely corresponds to the real coordinates of the interior design elements in the residential setting.
Sedova is a utopia-project. I was born on this street and spent my childhood there. This geographical area that has the exact coordinates, moved into the category of space fantasy, its existence in time and space stopped and was preserved. At that time it seemed to me that all dreams can be realized and all the inhabitants of this street loved me and strawberry ice cream. Keeping this view about the space where everything is in harmony, I collect all the buildings on all the Sedova streets in different cities as the utopian city of my childhood, where people understand each other without words and eat the same ice cream.
Plan of the city contain copies of all the Sedova streets in Russia and abroad, recorded by Google maps and Yandex maps.
THE IDENTITY OF THE VISIBLE
with Masha Molokova
We put the photos of our apartments in small utility stereo boxes. Inside they live their life, without merging into one image when you look at them, but creating a new everyday and typical picture.
Random details of this project become the primary elements of the public.
We were united in this project into the mechanism, where the object of shooting is determined by the everyday environment of everyone, and the photos are selected due to the similarity of the objects and their shooting to produce a "binary" view of the collective living space of the house. The fragmentation and displacement of the focal length used by us forces the viewer to recognize and "to finish", construct the images. Thus the viewer complements the proposed reality by his own and is involved in the collective household space.
