Alla Marcia

one-channel video in loop

color, sound

6’54’’ 

2015

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.
