Princess Or Tiger

2010
Eight double-sided screens were stretched on the spiral structure of the museum. The videos show eight repetitive journeys of a female character. Each journey was filmed from a slightly different angle so when seen all together from the first floor it creates a 360-degree view of the scenes. All channels can be viewed together from the first floor, or one by one in a chronological order on the second floor.

Eight double-sided screens were stretched on the spiral structure of the museum. The videos show eight repetitive journeys of a female character. Each journey was filmed from a slightly different angle so when seen all together from the first floor it creates a 360-degree view of the scenes. All channels can be viewed together from the first floor, or one by one in a chronological order on the second floor. The original soundtrack of the piece (composed by Vasiliy Medved) creates an orchestral piece when heard from the first floor, or functions as eight solo channels when videos seen one by one.
The piece is based on a book of mathematical riddles by Raymond Smullyan: In the book, a prisoner is given an opportunity to gain his freedom by solving a series of riddles and choosing a door. If he chooses a door behind of which there is a princes – he is free, if he chooses a door behind of which there is a tiger – he dies
