The River Logbook


Site: The Terek River

In Vladikavkaz, an artist has set up a camp on one of the islands in the floodplain of the Terek River. The purpose of staying on the island is to live, comprehend and fix the special state that modern man has encountered - self-isolation.

For the performer, voluntary distancing is associated not only with anthropological research, but also with the process of exploring the River. Its sounds, flow features, color. All "observations" are recorded in the "River Logbook".
