WHY NOT
performance, 35′
2015

Why not is a reaction to the ever-growing pressure on the private life of an individual through novel restrictions and bans. It aims at capturing the movements and gestures that could forever disappear under these circumstances. Tension is created between a mourning procession and various joyful moments of private life.

In this work Sasha Pirogova moves towards a consideration of the different pressures to conform brought to bear on an individual by the symbiotic movements of a group. These may be banal, absurd or provocative, yet not all of the group, or the audience, can agree on which is which. David Elliot
