R.E.P., ‘Smuggling,’ 2007 ‘A Letter From the Front’ (Лист з фронту), 2022

The documentary reality of those who cross the border daily, those traveling to a slightly better-off country in hopes of selling a carton of cigarettes or a bottle of vodka for meager profit, in some miraculous way both does and does not correspond to the actions of the artists traveling with them. 

This programme A Letter From the Front was originally commissioned and produced by Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli-Turin, after the invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. It is curated by Nikita Kadan with Giulia Colletti.
