Friendship of Peoples 2021

The work is dedicated to post-colonial Russia and touches on themes of identity and self-determination. It's about the desire to get rid of past attitudes and stereotypes to traditionally influence the freedom of a decolonized generation and build a world in which no one is any longer different.

The work is based on the "Friendship of Peoples" fountain, which is located at VDNKh in Moscow. The fountain serves as a symbol of the USSR. The golden sheaf is surrounded by 16 female figures representing the republic. Each of the figures holds plants in their hands - symbols of the republic, which were used to create the work.
the art object is in the collection of the Ruarts Foundation
