The Piece "Presence Sites" is based on a historic narrative that hasn't earned a place in the dominant hegemonic history. In this work, we make homage to soviet women who mostly lived and act between "October revolutions"
and the end of Stalin's time.
“We build new monuments. We try to do this thoughtfully and with care. We challenge heroic monuments that commemorate heroes. We are a body that tries to capture a moment. We are four women.
We disappear in the moment, in time, in the zeitgeist”
By means of performance and movement, we build “Presence Sites” to women from the history and presence of St. Petersburg.
