Alexander Ponomarev, “Maya: A Lost Island,” 2005.
Film Still Action in collaboration with the 5th fleet of the Russian Navy, Barents Sea Film.*
6 October – 21 November 2010
Drawing upon a background in nautical engineering and an early career as a submariner, Ponomarev uses his sea voyages as a starting point to explore relationships between illusion and reality, technology and art, mythology and documentary as a way of understanding the shifting tides of personal and cultural history particularly relevant to a contemporary Russian experience.
