In 2014 and 2018, the artist held a series of auto-actions in Belarus and Ukraine related to the involvement of local representatives of the artistic, cultural and activist environment.
For a duration of a week, the artist was serving as a driver for Belarusian male artists, whose work is famous, successful and demanded in the art system of the country. For different reasons none of them has a driving licence or a car. All the routes were connected to their work: workshop, purchasing supplies, meetings, lectures, discussions, etc. Hence the artist dedicated her work time to serving the professional interests of others.
She would become a one day personal driver for them. The results of the activity are represented through passenger’s questionnaires and drivers’ route forms, through document binders and the driver’s thermos.
A misplaced passive role of a steering-wheel guide (not “typical” to the female labor), refusal of the ability to choose the route speak of the duality and ambiguity in her work. Rather an attempt of balancing irony and enthusiasm of offering help, plays with the concepts of “high” and “low” (labor, art) as the hierarchy of professional relations. Without any words, the artist poses a question: a driver - is it who drives or the one who obeys the will of a passenger - supervisor? Who is ruled? The one who “has the right for it” or that who does not have a “driving license”?
