Wie heisst dieser Platz?, 2006
My Breath, 2007
Cinema version

Viktor Alimpiev, whose work Summer Lightings was shown at the 4th Berlin Biennale in the Former Jewish Girls' School, combines different artistic fields in his cinematic work: visual arts, music, theater and dance. In his films he has worked with the human body and more recently with song and speech. During the 2005 Venice Theatre Biennale he directed the play We're Talking about Music in Italian language together with Marian Zhunin. In Linz in 2006 he created the video Wie heisst dieser Platz? in German.

As part of the exhibition series "Art and Music" Art Laboratory Berlin is pleased to show two recent works, where the medium of film visualizes a full framework of references about speech, song and bodily movement, within which the concept of sculpture plays a vital role.
