Video
Street Without End,
2018

The video is based on selected frames of the 1972 “Street Without End” film by Belarusfilm Studio. The shooting was carried out in the then under construction city of Novopolotsk, the hometown of the artist. In the USSR, they planned to create a giant industrial center here.

For the video selected frames in which the character was present in a deserted city or park, using the montage of the hero "cut". A film about a certain creature/ghost/bubble in a deserted city, near factories and in a park that dissolved into the river. This work is about Soviet utopia, unfulfilled aspirations, urbanism and nature.

Fragment of the city plan.
Houses were built in the
form of an inscription
of the СССР (USSR) –
the last fourth house did
not have time to be built
before the collapse of the
Soviet Union.
