One-Man Protest As Per Russian Law
video / experimental video
ONE-MAN PROTEST AS PER RUSSIAN LAW 2012 3’25’’ Natalia Skobeeva works with video and engages latest technology and devices in order to communicate her ideas. The proposed work, the latest project by the artist, was shot on iPad during the VIP opening of Frieze London Artfair in October 2012. Natalia recorded the voice-over straight into in the device and showed the work on the same device the next evening as a part of Moving Image Artfair 2012 in London. Being a constant pendulum between 3 cultures (Russia, Belgium and UK) and passionately feeling the struggle of Russia to become a better place, the artist re-enacts the only allowed form of protest in Russia on the soil of the UK. The work is a step further into exploration of transnationalism and effects of the information flow and internet on oneʼs personality and identity.
