Elena Kholkina’s project for the Moscow biennale was a performative process where the leading part belonged to the event itself: its place and its time. Within 10 days Elena was observing everything taking place during the biennale, while within 10 nights she reframed all the things seen — with the help of the pictures and a handheld projector. The result of this work is an artist book. This is a part of it.

Why didn’t Gagarin and Tereshkova marry each other?
