Performance—Igor Tereshkov, filming—Vladimir Sevrinovsky

The anti-war performance Kremlin Kitchen was staged on March 14, 2022, beside the Kremlin wall. The artist and the camera operator were positive that they would be arrested. For that purpose, photographer Katrin Naumova was standing at some distance with a telephoto lens. She was supposed to document the arrest, but in the end, she filmed the performance itself. When Igor Tereshkov started running meat through the grinder, an officer of the Federal Protective Service came near, watched for a few minutes, and left in silence. He either liked the performance, or the artist failed to surprise the Kremlin with the picture of a bloodshed.
