Radio Chain
Performance, pirate radio
Izolyatsia Platform for Cultural Initiatives
Kiev, Ukraine

Radio Chain is a performative mobile installation created in October 2014 as part of the Izolyatsia Platform for Cultural Initiatives project “ZAHOPLENNYA”. A chain of participants are connected by individual radio units built by the artist which receive and re-transmit a broadcast from one unit to the next. During the performance, participants passed through the city connected only by radio waves, navigating their route based on the clarity of signal reception, and physically extending the reach of the broadcast. The broadcast content consisted of interviews with Ukrainian soldiers conducted by artists Yulia Kostereva, Yuri Kruchak, and journalist Maria Prokpneko.
