"Emptiness for loved"
Vladimir Bystrov
("Emergency group")

Videoinstallation includes four monitors placed on a circle and author's hokku by Vladimir Bystrov in the frameworks on the walls of gallery. A videoline represents the naked author who is running across from the monitor to the monitor. His each occurrence differs from previous, breaking off thus a continuity of space and a time continuum. An instant of stay of the running artist in emptiness between monitors - an escaping point of absence. In this vain aspiration running on a circle to change, open space and, probably to disappear - a position and existenсe of the artist at the same time.
