Driveway Birobidzhan
Installation/Performance, 2017
Video 3:56 min., Photo
The video portrays the inhabitant of an typical apartment in a five-story tenement house in Birobidzhan (Russia). Outside the building, a wooden ramp is built, on top of a jeep is parking. Eventually the window opens and a man climbs out. He sits in the car, drives down the ramp and disappears in the traffic of the street. The announced event attracted a crowd of visitors, but it was unclear what actually will happen. In the moment the audience understood, nothing else happens after the disappearance of the car, laughter broke out.
