The aim of the project “Свобода в неволе” is to specify such basic definitions as “freedom”, “will”, “frames” which are often considered by street artists. Work on this project consists of two stages and its result is going to exist both outdoors and indoor exhibition space. The first stage is emancipation of the spirit. This action is realized outdoors considered as ultimate free artistic area. Artists notch out silhouettes of birds with unfolded wings on previously covered with paint space of a fence. Notching a hole in the fence i.e. violation of physical boundaries integrity, is metaphor of emancipation of spirit which is ready to get over frames as a bird. Notched colorful birds are transferred in gallery space on the second stage. Formerly independent and turbulent, embodied unlimited freedom birds loose their inborn traits, but becoming an element of art-market they found new space and new life.
