Natalya Pershina-Yakimanskaya, The Worker With The Finger That He Cut Because Of The Protest Pointing To The Gypsy, 2010
Plotter drawing with hand colouring 40 x 30 cm Edition of 100, signed and numbered £80 (ICA Red Members £60)
Natalya Pershina-Yakimanskaya, also known as Gluklya, is part of the Russian collective Chto delat?, as well as the collaboration, The Factory of Found Clothes, with Olga Egorova.
Pershina-Yakimanskaya’s edition for the ICA is a sketch for the Partisan Songspiel for which Pershina-Yakimanskaya designed the sets and costumes. The ‘songspiels’ are narrative films that sit at the centre of Chto delat?’s visual practice. Taking on a mode of musical theatre developed by Bertolt Brecht and composer Kurt Weill in the early twentieth century, the songspiels present political and social concerns through the accessible and often humorous form of a song. The image of the ‘finger object’ comes from the story of a worker who cut off his finger during a hunger strike.
