Uriel Orlow: Remnants of the Future | Friday 21 September 2018  – Sunday 20 January 2019 | VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art

Part-documentary film, part sci-fi, Remnants of the Future portrays the precarious existence in a post-Soviet ghost-town – a modern ruin that is still waiting to fulfil its utopian ambition of communal living. It is set in Northern Armenia in a vast, unfinished housing project called Mush, built on the orders of Mikhail Gorbachev to house the people displaced by the 1988 Spitak earthquake. The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 abruptly halted the ambitious housing development and it has since remained in a ghostly unfinished state, inhabited only by migrating birds and isolated human scavengers who salvage scrap metal out of the hollow shells of concrete and live in parts of the big, skeletal housing blocks.
