lazarevaBorn in 1978 in Moscow. Education: faculty of art history at the Russian State University of the Humanities, Rodchenko Moscow School of Photography and Multimedia. Solo shows: “March 9” (2011, Rodchenko Moscow School of Photography and Multimedia), “Semiotics of the Kitchen of Martha Rosler” (2010, Art Academy restaurant, Moscow). Lives and works in Moscow.

In her video “Migrants”, Ekaterina Lazareva ironically appropriates the language of nature documen­taries, combining her visual material — an observation of the “life” of poplar seed tufts in the city — with the soundtrack from the film “Le Peuple Migrateur” by Jacques Perren and Jacques Cluzaud (in Russia it is distributed as “Birds”). In provoking empathy in viewers for what usually arouses irritation or is ignored, Lazareva is offering a kind of tolerance test, and also examines the ideas of internation­alism and multiculturalism and the poetics of free movement across borders embodied by “Le Peu­ple Migrateur.” “Migrants” metaphorically addresses the problem of contemporary Russian xenopho­bia in circumstances when direct representation is problematic, because the attempt to talk for the oppressed inevitably turns out to be an ethical trap.
