PAVLENSKY. LIFE NAKED
71 min. 2017, RUSSIA /LATVIA (recorded in Russia)
Directed by Darya Khrenova


Petr Pavlensky, artist and activist, is in the vanguard of foreign social change
in Russia. Through an array of challenging performances, he acts as a society’s
conscience in the face of an increasingly totalitarian state. From lying naked in
a coil of barbed wire, to nailing his scrotum to the pavement of Red Square,
his acts of defiance aim to spark debate and catalyse reform.
 

PAVLENSKY. ALASTI ELU
Re˛issöör Darya Khrenova
Pjotr Pavlenski, kaasaja Venemaa kõige mässumeelsem kunstnik, on valinud
oma performansite väljendusvahendiks enda keha ja selle deformeerimise.
Kunstniku kinninõelutud huuled ja okastraati mähitud alasti ihu Kremli ees
on valulik reaktsioon riigis üha kasvavale autokraatiale.
