„Return Of Lilith. Winter Solstice“ / 2021 / Video 04’15”/ by Zhanna Gladko
Music: Julia Mihaly

At this time, the border between the world of people and the otherworldly forces almost disappear. The winter solstice marks the beginning of a new cycle.

„Street Without En“ / 2018 / Video 5.22 min / by Sergey Shabohin
The video is based on selected frames of the 1972 “Street Without End” film by Belarusfilm Studio. The shooting was carried out in the then under construction city of Novopolotsk, the hometown of the artist. In the USSR, they planned to create a giant industrial center here.For the video selected frames in which the character was present in a deserted city or park, using the montage of the hero „cut“. A film about a certain creature/ghost/bubble in a deserted city, near factories and in a park that dissolved into the river. This work is about Soviet utopia, unfulfilled aspirations, urbanism and nature.
