Work «Slaughter tent» for the «Closed fish exhibition. Reconstruction» is an homage to the work of Elena Elagina and Igor Makarevich. They, in 1990, reconstructed the «Closed Fish Exhibition» in accordance with the found catalog of the exhibition of 1935. In the original work of Elagina and Makarevich, a photograph, taken during the 1980 KD* action “Three darkness. N. Panitkov», was used. To reconstruct this work,
I reenacted the KD* action, and took a photo of the tent that was built during the reenactment.
