Zapovedniy means ‘mysterious prohibition’ for remote regions in Russia. It is believed that supernatural beings live there and are appeased by the local population with offerings. But what does this have to do with Moscow? Everything. Annick Ligtermoet translates the tension on the streets of ‘Mocba’ into surreal images based on these Russian myths. Nothing is what it seems. As a viewer you are literally at the mercy of the gods.
