Birmingham Ornament 2

Birmingemskiy ornament 2

Russia, Japan, 2013


A Georgian chorus singing a traditional song that unexpectedly mentions the death of Saddam Hussein, samurais by the sea, the poets Mandelstam, Kliuev and Gorodezky and a Russian painter who immortalised Putin fishing. All surreal glimpses of the artist’s relationship with power.
