After 6 years, the audience survey was repeated in the gallery. The results are much better, but still leave much to be desired.

Transparent ballot box. At the top are stacks of cards with simple questions that worried the masses in 2010. The viewer is asked to answer the question Yes or No and throw the card into the ballot box. But inside there is no separation. This is a criticism of the presidential election in Belarus, and an absurd comment about our daily choice. The work was also shown in Warsaw and Tbilisi, for which some of the cards were changed to fit the context.

Sergey Shabohin prepared this project specially for the unique to the Belarusian contemporary art opening of the gallery of modern art “Ў”. He put a car in front of the gallery, decorated it with the symbol of the gallery, reminiscent of the one that marks a car intended to teach driving. The gallery asked to fill in ballot papers and throw in the car. To do this the artists lowered the auto glass. Thus, the car turned into a ballot box. The questions on the ballot concerned the painful issues in the Belarusian contemporary art. Voting results were announced later.
