The experimental exhibition Structure of Interference Combined at the GLUBINA Gallery is a research project. Its first part was carried out by 13 artists in the north of the Leningrad region. The participants plunged deep into meditation, trying the sensory experience of perceiving an unknown space, and then externalizing it in various media: video, sculpture, painting, installation, photography, performance. The exhibition took place in 3D first in a condemned Finnish cowshed and in a gallery in Moscow in summer 2022.
It's dangerous to be alive
There was a time on Earth during the Vendian period when living organisms were primitive, food chains were short, and there were no predators with teeth and spines. A heavenly time when living beings had no one to fear.
Today, things are different, of course. To maintain balance in nature, biomes need predators. Carnivores that eat herbivores, and megacarnivores that eat carnivores that eat herbivores. Fear is a natural instinct of a living organism that keeps it safe. Where there is no life, there is no fear.

Solo work. An ancient forest.
It is always very exciting to get into mysterious far away parts deep in the forest, where you can find plants that are many millions of years old. Sometimes, standing among them, I think: “You have seen a lot, my dear silent witnesses!"
