Andrei Pokrovskii (b. 1996) works are devoted to the problem of relations with various places, the issue of attachment to spaces (real, mythical or virtual) through the experience gained in their context: sensual and behavioral, meditative and emotional. In his works there is always a “stage” with the characters who inhabit or come from this place. On this “stage” the scenery controls the characters-actors through the created atmosphere and conditions of stay. In this way, through the body manipulations both actors and viewers gain the exceptional experience of staying in a particular location.
The project titled “The Outrage at Westminster” comes from a small note on the margins of the Westminster chronicles — a document, which, among other things, describes the burglary of king’s treasury on the grounds of the abbey in 1304, attempted by Richard of Puddlicott.
