Blue Noses are the direct heirs of the Blue Blouse — Soviet revolutionary-acrobatic brigades of the 1920s. Mizin and Shaburov say that they’ve got accustomed to the idea of a poet in Russia being “more than a poet” and an artist — being more that an artist… If so, the art must respond to relevant topics, illustrating headlines. The morning papers news in the evening appear in a light-box, banner of video-art! This art affects everybody — from pioneers to pensioners. Blue Noses put a mirror in front of us, and it turned out that our head is just beer, cigarettes and Bin Laden. Let’s scour our brain of rubbish!

Blue Noses concern themselves with the so-called contemporary art, implying the use the 20th-century techniques (photography, video, actions, installations). In this way the artists transform the actual visuality. What is “actual visuality”? Just put on your TV and you’ll see: a string of clips, endless comic shows, sex-obsessed advertisement, long-running copper serials and presidential news. Blue Noses do just the same but reduce it to absurdity… The 19th- century artists used to work en plein air but we live in quite different reality. That’s why contemporary artists prefer to clip photos of terroristic acts from magazines, to dissect low-comedian Petrosyan and to study Internet folklore.
