The main innovation of this year is the change of locationPhoto: Oleg GOLD

Well, firstly, the main innovation is the change of location. For several years in a row, a snow-white brig passes through the water area Not you along the Peter and Paul Fortress, the Hermitage and right under the Palace Bridge. This year, another, no less picturesque place was chosen, with very recognizable sights. Petersburg – stadium “Gazprom-Arena “, Lakhta-center and cable-stayed bridge ZSD.

The second innovation: live Petersburgers and visitors could not see all this beauty. And all because this year there are special requirements: because of the pandemic, access to the park is closed, it was also impossible to see from the water, since part of the Neva and the Gulf of Finland were blocked. GIMS boats and various services went around the water area and made sure that no one violated the ban. Law enforcement officers were also on duty on land: if they met people in a territory where there should not be anyone, they politely asked to leave the place and go home.

And at home, by the way, everyone would have considered it in the best possible way: there was a live broadcast of a concert and a pyrotechnic show on the Internet and on TV. By the way, on the screen you can see what on the shore would definitely not be accessible to the eye. And all because along the Neva and the Gulf of Finland there were several scenes at once and on each of them there was an action.

The main stage was next to the Gazprom Arena stadium, it was also very unusual – as if soaring in the air, and with it the stars acting on it. Leading the holiday were Ivan Urgant and Daria Александрова.

Asymptomatic carriers, scientists called the “coronavirus vaccine”

Collective immunization takes place at the expense of these people.

Asymptomatic coronavirus carriers do what the vaccine should do. So says the Head of the department of interferons and the laboratory of interferonogenesis at the National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology named after Gamalei, academician of RAS Felix Ershov

A vaccine that scientists around the world are working on should lead to collective immunity from the disease. As in the case of the flu. The more people vaccinated, that is, not susceptible to the virus, the less the spread of the disease. There is no vaccine from coronavirus, then collective immunization can take place at the expense of asymptomatic people:

– These are mainly young people, children. They spread the virus and, in fact, do what the vaccine should do: collective immunization is underway. When it reaches 70%, the growth of the disease will end. This process is well known among viral infections, ”the scientist said on the air. NSN.

But the danger is that this process is uncontrolled, asymptomatic carriers can infect people at risk: the elderly, people with chronic diseases. For this category of patients, infection can be deadly.

– It is necessary to maintain strict control measures. They have already allowed to reduce the incidence – it is not explosive, ”advises Felix Ershov. – People need to wash their hands more often. Patients must wear masks. Healthy, not necessarily, rather it is necessary for complacency.

Alberto Giacometti, plasters to reshape

Is it to know that they have disappeared? In the photos, the works are reminiscent of the silent relics of an extinct civilization. A conical volume decorated with two eyes and a navel, which stands like a totem in the middle of a deserted workshop (1 + 1 = 3, 1934). A puzzle of geometric shapes assembled on a plate (Composition, circa 1927-1928), like a miniature Stonehenge. A faux menhir tapered like a knife, where we recognize two nipples and two arms – Woman (flat I), 1928-1929. These ghostly works are all by Alberto Giacometti, who is between 26 and 33 years old when he creates them, and they have all disappeared. Destroyed, by the artist or by accident, or simply passed out in ether without a trace.

Fragility

The phenomenon was more common in Switzerland than in others, we learn in the very pretty exhibition “In search of missing works”, at the Giacometti Institute (Paris XIVe), because the young artist willingly got rid of his work, whether it was due to a lack of space in his small studio or by perfectionism, destroying and starting over again, continuing in the same vein. And that’s without counting the fragility of the plaster with which they were made (the least expensive material for a student) or the casualness of its first collectors, not very attentive to the creations of a quasi-unknown. From 1935, according to the catalog, it is entirely that “Destroying is part of the creative process” from Switzerland, who then begins to document the works before liquidation.

We can lament these disappearances (because everything, or almost everything is good, with Giacometti, even before he makes Giacometti), we can also do something with it, and that is precisely what undertook the commissioner, Michèle Kieffer. Because of these sculptures there remain sketches, photos, written comments, and unlike the prehistoric artefacts to which they are related, on the beautiful black and white prints signed by anonymous or friends, Man Ray or Marc True, it is still possible to make them speak, even to reconstruct them.

Trap

So this little rectangular man, like robotics before the hour, behind which the artist poses in 1927. A letter from Giacometti to Matisse tells us that he sometimes had “Want to do it again” : “It was my first figure”, he writes. So this Anxious woman in a bedroom harmed hert (1931-1932) that we discover in a photo of Man Ray: a jaw, like a wolf trap, seems to attack a female form lying, echoing both the Slaughtered woman (1932-1933) than a superb, immense documentary reconstruction produced for the expo, that of Silence bird (1930-1933). Heart of the journey, she cages two gigantic creatures half-insects half-human – unless it is a praying mantis and a man armed with a fork – in a fight whose violence has something as striking as the sheer beauty of its forms.
