ARROW

 Photography, performance and catalogue. 

To the 800th anniversary of Nizhny Novgorod, Russian city, founded in 1221.

This project is a metaphor about the space and spirit of ancient Nizhny Novgorod began with a walk along the walls of the Kremlin. At some point, there was a feeling that you were walking on the back of a dragon that was curled up in a ring on the green hills. The Kremlin has turned into the image of a guardian snake from legends, with sharp scales and a long tail.

The spirals of roads and steep slopes, the height, the flight of the gaze along when you stand at the top, inspired the image of an arrow. The name of the point on the map is also symbolic — the Arrow is the confluence of the Oka and the Volga, two rivers on which Nizhny Novgorod is based.

This project is a study of the topic of speed, bowstring vibrations and arrow bends in flight through dance — body movements are correlated with the physics of archery, the vector of river flow.


The authors of the project: Yulia Artemyeva, Anna Friedrich
