Alexey Alpatov
Empty Episode


Fleeting episodes, snatched "pieces of attention", random scraps of events, all this is an elusive part of the story that the viewer is used to not noticing. It is for this that Aleksey Alpatov uses a camera, documenting the life of a big city. Picturesque techniques allow him to keep the viewer's attention, accentuating the necessary moments and cutting off all unnecessary. The categories of time and place seem to become a single whole. It is this approach that allows the artist to build a whole story. This impression is reinforced by the elongated format, which implicitly sends us to the cinema. Before the viewer, it is no longer just cityscapes, but missed episodes, which are usually added to films only to give a special atmosphere, but for the artist they become a full-fledged statement. Now they are not empty filling of timekeeping, but independent blocks, the main characters of the project.
