Pictures from TUPOLEVA performance at Pushkin House

TUPOLEVA - my new performance was presented in Pushkin House on the 7 November. It combines a story of my native town Zhukovsky and episodes of it's recent history.This piece is dedicated to a friend antifascist activist Alexey Gaskarov who spent his last 6 month in prison awaiting trial in fabricated 6 May case, he is among other 27 activists and common protesters. More information his case is at gaskarov.info webpage.




The piece was presented on the opening of an exhibition of Soviet posters from Marx Memorial Library, that was co-organised with Pushkin House, where I was kindly commissioned to make a piece of work responding on the current condition of utopian thinking in Russia. Warm responses, attention generosity and patience of the public was really appreciated, after all it was a very good and intense experience.
