My Body is My Castle
performance, Shirayevo,
place: beach near the museum

Idealised notion of Home embodies feelings of protection, security, safety, privacy, intimacy and so on. It should be a personal sanctuary from the world outside, not only as a space, but also as relationship. People in contemporary western society are obsessed with being safe and protected. That obsession is nightmare like. One needs to worry, firstly about their material possessions and then about their own and close ones well-being, further the concern to protect their physical bodies from any harm sometimes leads to total paranoia. Being occupied with this they believe, that the state should guarantee with regulations, rules and means the protection of it's citizens and their homes, without asking questions. At the same time no-one demands, neither seems to be concerned with, protection of individual's mind and soul.
