Subordination dialect in Igor Samolet’s photographs is considered to be that seed, from which grows its visual series. Artist is trying to balance on a shallow ground of rules and limits. The author strives for naturalism through filming a report on manifestations of rigid forms of communication, finding them both in human relationships, and in surrounding reality. Desire of ruling or slavery is manifested in all of us in different states. Just as a steam, it can be dispersed into an air and is completely imperceptible to an eye sight. However, in artist’s works the status of this substance is put in strictly defined conditions and assigned to a certain role.
The author depicts relationships, based on a power exchange.Affects interesting roles in the «domination/submission» game, in which characters enjoy taboo violations.
«My heroes are young people working and living in Moscow. This may be our neighbors and co-workers, friends. I was always interested in how far a person can go, when there are no limits. How a person changes, though the process of getting a power and grip. Why each of us has a secret endeavor for perfection».
Severity of narration, unfolding on the photographs, may lead us astray. Perhaps the only way out of this binarity may be a position of passive inaction.
