Sunday Afternoon at the Sleet-Mart, 1997

Video of 1997 performance piece “Sunday Afternoon at the Sleet-Mart.” Prior to leaving St. Petersburg, Russia for the last time, I sold off all the stuff didn’t want to take with me at an ad-hoc market at a far suburban metro station. Most vendors were selling new products from China, I was selling crap. When the mafia who extorted money from the line of people standing in the snow came by to collect, they looked at my underwhelming display and gave me a 50% discount. The video was shown as a part of my 1997 solo installation  “Tales and Artifacts from the Evil Empire.”
