garden of stone (1991)

 

Garden of Stone series which was created in 1991 during my numerous trips around the USSR (Yalta, Odessa, Cheboksary, Kaliningrad, Moscow etc.) is a collection of endangered species of mass propaganda -- anonimous sculpture compositions (often with allegoric undertone) made from gypsum. Scattered up and down the country -- in gardens, parks, yards of different Soviet towns -- they continue to linger out their days and demonstrate inviability of Soviet mythes with their half-ruined state.
