1. SACRED PROCESSION: Kaliningrad, Russia

    16 April - 20 May 2015

    Baltic Biennial of Photography

    Nikita Shokhov gathered material during 3 years of shooting at Velikoretsk sacred procession, the oldest orthodox pilgrimage in Russia. Like in previous projects the artist has not solely documented the reality, but he created a visual experiment by interfering to the natural light with color filters, or sometimes offering a scenario to the heroes.Thus, the author goes from photography as a document to the field of contemporary art. The experiment continues in the exposition. And the concept of the installation was done specifically for the space of Baltic Biennial. It is based on the idea of overcoming the limits of the "frame", and the elongation of the hall referes to the crowd of pilgrims extended for many miles.
