Agents is a moving image work created during the spring of 2020, which contemplates folk art history and observes the effect of strict quarantine measures on people and their creativity. Revisiting and filming the sites of traditionally carved wooden public sculpture that include the motifs of her region, Sosunova notices how forests and parks are gradually filled with spontaneous vernacular art and temporary structures by its visitors. Investigating the agency behind the folk art revival and the vernacular creativity, the protagonist of the video initiates a dialogue with a wood artisan to express suspicions and learn what lies behind their intentions to reproduce ethnic art imagery and myths. As the conversation unfolds on whether the agency may be distributed around a host of artefacts enrolled in the realisation of our original intentions, the two in the car wait for an ‘agent’ to be sighted in the flesh and action.
