An Epoch of Clemency

back to have your say

photograph by Blue Noses © Alexander Shaburov & Vyacheslav Mizin, Novosibirsk, 2005
60 x 80 cm, 23.6 x 31.5 ins; limited edition of 10 prints

The Sibirian artists Alexander Shaburov and Vyacheslav Mizin, known as Blue Noses, are notorious for their provocative statements expressed in video clips and series of photographic collages. With biting humour and poignant sarcasm they are questioning power structures of political, clerical, cultural and wordly origins as well as mocking moral standards and medial clichés that restrict human individuality.

The photograph, entitled An Epoch of Clemency, was insprired by Banksy's graffiti of Kissing Constables. The Russian minister for culture confiscated the photograph, along with others, just prior to its export to France, thus preventing it to be shown at the Maison Rouge in Paris in the fall of 2007, reasoning that its public display were to represent a "political provocation" bringing shame on Russia.
