yota space

onedotzero delivered a diverse festival programme at Yota Space, St Petersburg

onedotzero headed to the beautiful, wintery St Petersburg to present a scintillating selection of installations, screening programmes and live audiovisual performances at Yota Space.

This brand new collaboration with the International Festival of Audiovisual Arts Yota Space saw five floors of a former department store be transformed into a museum of contemporary art and surprise entertainment centre.

With regular onedotzero artists including UVA, Jason Bruges and Memo Akten, onedotzero occupied one floor with a stunning exhibition space designed by Francesco Draisci Studio.

A one day creative conference also gave visitors a chance to meet some of the featured artists and learn more about their work. 

Installations

A fun and interactive, performance-driven installation, which plays with the familiar form of a mirror.

An immersive, visual and sonic experience to challenge the senses. This is a site-specific new version commissioned by onedotzero especially for the Yota Space.

Toplogies / Quayola
A bespoke, multi-screen installation where pre-modernist paintings re-emerge from their sedentary stillness, to evolve into complex and mutable formations. Proved particularly popular in London at this years onedotzero_adventures in motion 2010 festival.

Strata #1 + Strata #3 / Quayola
Two installations from the Strata series which investigates improbable relationships between contemporary digital aesthetics and icons of classical art and architecture.

A new musical creation tool. By sticking post-it notes on a surface, people create a musical piece and mix animations.

Two graphical animation loops inspired by the work of French outsider artist Augustin Lesage (1876-1954). Created with students at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark.
