Performance "YOU" of Lydia Russkova at the exhibition of Alexander Kupalyan

November 26 th the new performance "YOU" of the young provocative director Lidia Rousskova was presented at VS Unio art gallery. Many artistic elements were used at the gallery for the first time: painting, media installation, light, music, mirrors, the living man as the object of art.
Throughout the evening the barefooted actresses, dressed in nude color were in a trance and then plunged into the empty space of glass installation. The director has specially chosen different figures of actresses.

In spite of their static nature, the actresses attracted the attention of the audience, who looked them in the eyes with the help of them, discussing the meaning of what was happening. On the other hand, the performance will directly undergo unexpected changes. The original idea of "Life beyond glass" was hypertrophied and embodied the effect of "double glazing" (installation window separating the actress from the public and the smartphone from the camera).

All cameras of smartphones and television cameras were intended for an actress, the modern man can not meditate and detach from his screen. the guests of the presentation noted that the performer stood motionless behind the glass, creating the impression of a human silicone silhouette.
Gallerists, young artists and theater and cinema actors visited the presentation of the performance.
