Yuri Leiderman, ‘Birmingham Ornament,’ 2010 ‘A Letter From the Front’ (Лист з фронту), 2022

The film mixes innovative forms of poetry, music, and theater with existing traditions in an attempt to overcome their boundaries. Film is made into some kind of an ornament, in which lines divided into fragments and intertwining with each other, form an integral poetic statement.

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.
