“Drama-House” is a collection of short stories placed in one interactive multimedia installation. “Drama House” pay house calls on unsuspecting residents. Buzzing one of eight bells summons dwellers of a fantasy apartment building to their open window. Projected video of the tenants – servants, intellectuals, wealth, middle-class, professionals, immigrants and criminals – gives the voyeur access to society’s home life. Through participation, the viewer creates the setting, tone, and pace of a wonderful story of the everyday.
Alexandra Dementieva has exhibited widely internationally. She is currently up for one of the world’s top art honors, The Kandinsky Prize. She is represented by XL Gallery.
