"52 Hz" is a performative installation about loneliness, solitude, and the boundaries between them, created specifically for the Prospect of the Cultural Center "GES-2."
The title refers to the story of the world's loneliest whale, unable to find companions responding to the same frequency.
Inside the installation, a performance unfolds. Designed for a single viewer, immersing in the atmosphere of solitude, they are transported from the whale's skeleton to a typical one-room Moscow apartment. There lives Anya, who contemplates the world ocean, rarely leaving home, envisioning herself as that lonely whale.
The interactive environment, along with auditory, visual, and olfactory elements, creates a unique experience, allowing the exploration of the boundaries of loneliness.
EventGroup handled the design, production, and installation of the art object, including the 25-meter whale skeleton, modified railway tank, and interactive installation inside. Technological solutions for integrating animatronics and multimedia were also developed.
