Apocalypse Lullaby project / in cooperation with Nail Baiburin

Lullaby was shot in Bashkortostan in the steppe near the village of Kargaly, in Blagovarsky district. The song is a common lullaby sung in Tatar by an old Tatar old. “Eli-vyeli” means “Rock-a-bye”.

The artist is interested in the problem of the duality of the world. He bases this work on the controversy of the state of absolute bliss conveyed by the song and the dynamics of the performers in the snow among gigantic rolling wicker balls that symbolize the tangles of the universe.
