painted bronze

The work was made specially for the exhibition “Lenin: icebreaker”, held in Murmansk on the icebreaker “Lenin”, and further at the museum of contemporary art Lentos in Linz, Austria.

While creating this work, I was thinking about:
_heaviness and lightness
_the past and the future
_the real and the artificial
_the cheap and the invaluable
_ice, marble, limestone, concrete
_steel screws and fish in water
_black and white
_light and darkness
_symbols and signs
_the horizon
_rings and chains
_markets and graveyards
_Murmansk and Moscow
