Video Artist: Julia Sharkina
Country: Year: Duration: 10 min 15 sec


Video art performance exploring the feelings and reactions of the viewer at work he or she looks at. The project was created for an event whose main subject was IMMORTALITY. For me, the feeling of immortality is born in the moment of a passionate kiss, when a feeling of connection, dissolution and a passionate desire to live is born.
