Zaum Tractor is a parallel event of the 5th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art. It is an ambitious 2-screen HD video filmed in southern Russia and nearby former Soviet republics.
Zaum Tractor addresses notions of freedom and collectivity though a series of architectural stagings of transrational ‘zaum’ poetry written by Russian Futurists 100 years ago. The work also presents contemporary social spaces of athleticism and risk-taking, annual tractor races, displays of faith and patriotism, the machine-like playing of church bells and the resurgent modern-day Cossacks in Russia’s south.
