Street Without End
The cycle is dedicated to Navapolack, where the artist was born. Navapolack is one of the youngest cities in Belarus, which began to be built in 1958 around the city's oil refinery. The city was a Soviet utopia, which did not materialize, and under the new political and economic conditions, the city began to decline. This is also indicated by the construction of the housing blocks in the form of letters СССР (USSR), but the last house in the form of the letter Р (R) was not completed due to the collapse of the Soviet Union. The main work of the cycle is a video based on selected shots of the feature film Street Without End (1972) by Belarusfilm film studio. It was filmed in Navapolack, which was under construction at the time. For the video, the character on the background of urban space and natural landscapes was "cut out", turned into a ghost. This cycle is about Soviet utopia and its unfulfilled aspirations, urbanism and nature, memory and nostalgia.
