The goddess of Love revealed to us at the Carte Blanche festival @cbfest Yekaterinburg, 2020. Punish us, dear, and we'll go on, renewed and free, changed and resurrected. 🌜At the end of the XIX century the whip was considered a Russian national attribute in the eyes of foreigners. Europeans were struck by the brutality the peasants were treated with in Russia, and how popular were public flogging. No less cruel were the peasants and workers later with their yesterday's masters. Is it possible in the twenty-first century to expect that demonstrative punishments, whips and gallows belong to the past? Can we transfer our anger and resentment into the field of art, steal the signified from the sign and replace it with something creative? I don't have an answer, but I'm trying.
