’ award-winning video artwork “Corridor II” screened at the Krasnoyarsk International Festival of Media Arts that took place in Krasoyarsk, Russia from December 5th to the 7th. The artwork focuses on the root causes of aggression in men and examines the roles of the victim-perpetrator relationship.
Marina Fomenko, the curator of the screening, lectured on the function of the festival movement in relationship to the development of video art. Following the lecture, works from international artists of Poland, Sweden, Vietnam, Russia, France, U.K., U.S.A., and China were presented.
The organizers comment on the festival website, “Artists are actively using new technologies in the world today, but there is little representation in Krasnoyarsk. The tradition of the festival will help to change the situation and draw the attention of young artists and creative young people to the city and media arts.”
The annual festival is supported and sponsored by the Ministry of Culture of the Krasnoyarsk Territory and the General Directorate of Culture of the city administration of Krasnoyarsk.
