Therapeutical Catering
Performance at the solo exhibition opening. Fragment gallery.
The Russian White House cake is installed in the middle of a gallery space. Candles are lit, spectators are waiting. After they realize none is going to say anything or cut the cake, they approach and start destructing it by themselves (it's easy after someone takes the first bite). This short symbolic act can be seen as art therapeutical. The day when the building was shot in 1993 remember even those who wasn't there at the time. The image of the Moscow White House burning is one of the symbols of the 90's era. During this happening the scary image turns into something new like a feast, becoming new collective experience, bringing new memories.
