On the Benefits of Pyramids in Cultural Education, Strengthening of National Consciousness, and the Formation of Moral and Ethical Guideposts

The performance work continues the development of similar ideas as in the work Tightrope, ideas around the unstable situation of culture in the Caucasian region, questions of preservation and individual artistic fear of art production. What one has to do to make an imprint in the history of art? To earn a place in the rigid mental structure of national / international history of art? 61 artworks, reproductions from the Dagestan Museum of Fine Art named after P.S.Gamzatova. This selection is an attempt to outline the 20th century fine art history of the Republic. For the performance the metal structures from the video Tightrope with all the works inside were placed in the VDNKh 1st pavilion exhibition space. Once a day for the duration of the exhibition 12 circus acrobats came into the space and used a selection of artworks from these structures to build different figures with their bodies, paintings and works on paper. They sustained these figures for as long as they could. Each day the artworks used in various “pyramids” were different.

This work is part of the series, which also includes “Tightrope” video.
