Khan's Flesh shows the choreography of everyday activities in a small Belarussian town. Citizens' bodies form and reproduce a system of norms, rules, and role models through mutual control, praise, and punishment. These interwoven social structures are observed and recontextualized through montage. The images' strict tableau-style reveals a routinized performativity of everyday life.
