Rekhen was shot between the mountain villages of Tsada and Ahalchi, in the republic of Dagestan. It has a simple narrative: a young man is wearing a traditional sheepskin coat called a Timug that is usually worn by shepherds. The man attempts to scramble as close as possible to the flock of sheep. Literal interpretation of this work is concerned with local nature or traditional cultural symbols. It has a supportive function to the content of the work- “What is the goal behind performers actions?”
The work deals with the problems of social relations, which demand consent with certain rules and regulations for social and cultural integration. Is it about what we are ready to do in order to beсome a part of community? What choices do we need to make for this to happen!? Are we ready to wear a heavy and highly uncomfortable (from a modern perspective) garment and get down on all fours?
