The main topic of my videos could be defined as immigration and following transformations of a personality I think each immigration takes minimum 5 years of your life till you start to feel connected to a new place, understand the language, unspoken rules and so on. So it’s a traumatic process for everyone.
Somehow the fact that Soviet Union(the country I was born in) doesn’t exist anymore reduces any possibility of going back, makes me to look forward and try to adapt myself always to a new reality and new places. It became an important issue for me to learn a lot about the place where I live (first Tel-Aviv and now Zurich) and try to build a dialog through my art practices (video and painting). But the longer I live in the Western Europe, than it’s more interesting to analyze certain things about the soviet life. Sometimes the Soviet, Eastern European utopia I grew up with becomes thus a distorted reality in the West.

The earlier videos, filmed in Israel were all based on one principal. I was filming people doing some similar action. That trick is now widely used in cinema, advertisement and music clips. But in the end of the nineties, when I produced it looked quite fresh and original. And I did quite many short videos with the same people, mostly Russian immigrants in their first years in Israel. It wasn’t a random random choice, these people were my friends. They were artists, musicians, actors, fashion designers and etc. that created a special mood and atmosphere.

Filming the raw material for my Trilogy documentary about the perception of beauty, fears and happiness I had to travel to Tel Aviv and back to Zurich, and Moscow was initially in my mind as well which led me back to my roots. Trying to answer a question, where do I belong to, I realized that there is no answer and just have to let myself flow with stream of life and not be obsessive about the past.

KINDER DER GALAXIS:

12. April 2016 — 15. Mai 2016

Maria Pomiansky, Vadim Levin, Svetlana Mazulevskaia, Vladimir Arkhipov und Ivan Mikhailov„Wir sind Kinder der Galaxis“ – sang man in einem sowjetischen Lied unserer Kindheit. „Wir“ – das ist die in den 1960-1970ern in der Sowjetunion geborene Generation, die mit Kosmonauten und Raketen in ihrem Kindergartenalltag gut vertraut und von der transhistorische Mission ihres Volkes fest überzeugt aufwuchs, die Generation, die ihre Verantwortung für die Wiederkehr des Vintageregimes im neuen Jahrtausend tragen wird.
