one-channel video in loop
The video work consists of two parts: one is an operating concrete mixer which turns old clothes over and over together with sand; the other is a journey of the artist through the abandoned modernist-era spaces, perhaps former hospital, where she is searching for old clothing objects. The interior is a palimpsest of material residues of past times. The artist walks through this abandoned, devastated social space, where she is not threatened, but just left by herself, a bit like as in today’s Russia. The name of the work is a musical term, referring to the noise of the machine that resembles a march with its clear rhythm in a classical 120 bits per minute tempo, thus referring to the atmosphere of uncertainty.
The project was shown at the group exhibition called Between the lines/ Curator Stas Shuripa/ January 26 —February 8, 2016 /GRAD Gallery, London, United Kingdom / https://www.grad-london.com/whatson/between-the-lines/
