Singapore documentation

Among other things my recent job was being a part of Prudential Eye Awards team. Project intended at supporting emerging Asian artists. I was coordinating Russian participants and interpreting for some of them at the events, interviews and the Awards Ceremony. It was intensely interesting, and it was a great pleasure to meet artists, and of course I am a bit personally disappointed that none of the artists under my care took any prizes.

This is the documentation from British Council master-class with Frazer Macdonald Hay: I am interpreting for a brilliant Russian curator - Andrei Erofeev.

Another piece of documentation came though Pytor Verzilov's twitter. Pyotr follows Pussy Riot's Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina in their international tour. Ladies represented feminist punk band Pussy Riot who were nominated with their famous punk prayer: Mother of God Take Putin Away in the media art category  at the Prudential Eye Awards. It was a pleasure to meet recently freed artists and activists, and I am very excited about their new project Zona Prava. Rather sad Ekaterina Samustevich, another known member of Pussy Riot could not be there.
