Performance

1983, February

Location: S.Sokhranskaya’s studio

Duration: ca. 3 hours

Material: a sheet of plexiglas 100X100cm, gripped in a vice fixed to a log, oil pastel, a tape-recorder in black polyethylene bag pulled down on an iron chain in the cellar.

Illumination: light in the cellar, illumined Plexiglas

Audiotape: Text on Moscow Unofficial Art Today.

Artists stand on the opposite sides of Plexiglas drawing the diagram – some kind of Russian Art topography while from the cellar audiotape with art critic text can be heard. As a result of drawing - a cottage on hen’s legs with a roof signed: TOTART. The text ends with TOTART “manifest”. Last words are: “Attention! Our recorder is in recording regime”.
