Every Day I Talk to the Dead
& Alive Artists

The self-proclaimed Belarusian pavilion became the significant event in Minsk and has attracted the attention of the authorities. Due to its implementation – Belarus will be first presented in 2011 in Venice.

The artist has produced four series of works for Belarusian Pavilion 53 Venice Biennale which became a protest of the Belarusian unofficial artistic circle against the reluctance of the authorities to prepare Belarus for participation in this Biennale. The works have generated interest of the public and the professional jury: the artist became the winner in both categories (“The choice of the spectator” and “The choice of the jury”).
