All of Anastasia Khoroshilova‘s work to date is devoted to the study of human beings in their real physical settings and as members, by force of social circumstance or geography, of a communality of some sort. The tree is one of the most original elements of the visual culture, which stand for the basic, binary meanings – life – death, heaven – earth.

These meanings are not lost in the course of time, rather they endure as obvious or ambiguous messages, which transform every time – independent from time and the cultural context. This refers to the visualized forms. Upon Khoroshilova’s request, the students of the school “people with limited physical resources” (the official name in Russia), who use other forms of communication (class for deaf-mute actors), have attempted to show their own version of the authentic roots of mankind in the form of stage plasticity.

The background of this experiment is the every day, urban landscape of a major city, which, against all expectations, absorbed the experiment organically.

Presented artists: Ian Burns, Anastasia Khoroshilova, Sara Rahbar
