Lviv, Ukraine

video installation

Videoinstallation "Buttons" is composed out of three elements: a video piece - the nearly static Edie Sedgwick's "Screen Test" by Andy Warhol, an audio - Winston Churchill's speech to the House of Commons from 4 June 1940 known as "We shall fight on the beaches" and an object - two buttons glued to the screen covering Edie's eyes. "We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender!", speaks out Churchill to his compatriots, while a nice-looking blond girl stares at the spectator with her hypnotic button-eyes.

Yuriy Sokolov, Millions of Flowers
action, Decima Gallery, Lviv

"Millions of Flowers" was an homage to Western conceptual and minimal art as well as to Russian actionism. As Hlib Vysheslavsky put it, "it was a minimalist conceptual statement - a reflection on the work of his collegues including actions by Avdey Ter-Oganian at Trehprudny Lane in Moscow and the activities of The Kitchen, New York. While his tools were pronouncedly minimal: elder flowers all over the floor and several machine-typed texts on the walls."
