Description of the artwork «Earth and form»

A visualized dialogue with Gilles Telecom, the dialogue of images of past and present in time and space manifested in the film A. UGA "Land form" (2013-2015). Species shooting architectural landscapes in different parts of the world – Astana, Karaganda, Almaty, Tashkent, Saint Petersburg, Seoul, Istanbul, Sofia and other places is not just geography, but "geography of the mind" according to Deleuze. It's not a specific city, not a specific land, but a new global city in the state of no-form. Freely evolving state space is broken images-phantoms of the films of Leni Riefenstahl. Athletes "Olympia" (1938) here appear as shape-Gestalt, from time to time suddenly occurs in the middle of the squares, courtyards and roads of the new city and called some authority to fix mobile not-form a rigid structure. The architectural installations of contemporary cities strangely reminiscent of the monuments of the past: the ziggurats, towers, pyramids, ancient temples – live with us here and now. The spiritual substance of the past, seemingly forever sunk into Oblivion, surfacing our collective memory, reproducing Intrusive semantic landscapes. Double exposure kind of modern Astana and the final scenes of the film Julia Reisman "knight of the Golden Star" (1950) in the final refers to the way Stalin's "Paradise", warning about the possibility of returning.
