LIZA MOROZOVA
1973, Moscow. Lives and works in Moscow

Today the limits of life and art, or natural and artificial realities are as imperceptible and washed away as the borders of states and cultures, as the identity of a contemporary man who lives in the world of mass media and often becomes an involuntary participant in someone’s actions — political, cultural, etc., which, in turn, transform his life into a big Multicultural Show. The borders of peripheries and the center, or marginalities and mainstream, are also mobile and conventional. They constantly substitute each other becoming now subject, now background. This situation is explored and reproduced ‘here and now,’ within the installation/performance recreating the situation of ‘periphery-center’ in the exhibition space. As a result it leads to the overcoming of these binary positions and to a demonstration of their equality in the contemporary world.
This work belongs to the new trend in Russian contemporary art initiated by Anatoly Osmolovsky and ESCAPE Program in 2000 — the “non-spectacular art.” — Liza Morozova
