Kyiv’s Youth Leaving a Grocery Store

Video, color, sound, 2’ 52’’ 

Kyiv’s Youth Leaving a Grocery Store is an homage to the Lumiere brothers’ classic “Workers leaving the Lumiere Factory”. Reconsidering the world’s first cinematic works, the artists address the redefining of labour and change of socio-economic formation. Thus, a producing factory turns into a consuming factory, and leisure turns into exhausting toil on the dancefloor.
