installation (photo wallpaper, garbage)

The installation was created specifically for the Pinchuk Art Prize 2011 contest.

The installation consists of a narrow corridor, having passed which the spectator finds themselves in a stinking room, where they stand surrounded by unconscious, half-naked, and covered by various explicit writings girls lying on the floor riddled with fags, bottles, and tainted leftovers.The installation is based on an experiment in my Kharkiv workshop, whereto I deliberately invited some almost unknown women, whom I provided with lots of alcohol and allowed to have their time freely. The abusive sexist expressions (such as ‘whore’, ‘cocksucker’, ‘fuck here’) written by themselves on each other’s bodies are a projection of how they see their roles in the modern society.
