The exhibition is co-hosted by London’s Narrative Projects and is the first solo show in the Russian capital by the London-based artist. The title comes from the 1924 Soviet silent sci-fi film Aelita. It quotes the intertitle from the scene where ‘Aelita’, who lives on Mars, first encounters ‘Los’, a visitor from Earth. She asks him ‘Touch my lips with your lips – – as you do on Earth’. In this poetic manner, Noronha Feio “underlines the gap in communication inherent within any form of intercultural exchange”.
The artist’s practice is focused on “transcending the limitations of any single culture through the introduction and inclusion of multiple cross-cultural visual vocabularies”. He often works with performance, video, drawing, painting, photography, rug works and multimedia installation.
