Oleg Eliseev, Evgeny Kukoverov:
There is no way to see the exhibition because there is no exhibition as such. The negation of the very static situation, where objects assume beautiful poses whilst standing still before the eyes of the spectators, diminishes with each subsequent slide of the roller block. Undoubtedly, we could always agree with the combination of objects built by the previous visitors of the exhibition but it’s also possible to get rebellious and break the existing order. It brings to mind analogies of Russia’s political system whereby there are only two ways of existence - a conformist game following the rules of the authorities or a constructive resistance to it, suggesting your own way of living. Instantly, a comparison comes to mind with the Swiss duo Fischli and Weiss, with their travel and transformation of objects (especially their video ‘The Way Things Go’) but the work of the Elikuka distinguishes itself by having a non-linear structure of move- ment based on the impulsive individual chaos of the spectator. In addition to the artistic component forming the project, there is also a secret ecological component - every movement of the cable will generate power which will be used to pay the electricity bill of REGINA Gallery.
