  1. Bow, Liz Magic Laser and Sanya Kantarovsky, 2012, performance, ink and bleach on linen, pedestals and single-channel video, 3 minutes, Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Moscow, Russia.

  2. Bow was a collaborative installation and performance staged at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art in 2012. Kantarovsky and Laser devised a lexicon of four postures that reference recognizable gestures from political and theatrical activities, such as a bow or a raised fist. The icons which appear on the handout and in the paintings were designed to reference postures emblematic of four archetypes, the actor, the citizen, the dictator and the spectator, and were used to write a choreographic score. In practice each of these gestures were stylized with allusions to Meyerhold's system of Biomechanics and were performed in two different ways: as a performer standing atop pedestals and as a spectator in a seated position.
