Beyond fences

paper, watercolour, mixed media, 86x62, 2008

The pictures of the fence represent a chronology of postsoviet situation. Being built with the help of soviet production junks, the fence is like a work of art, an installation that mentally and emotionally transfers the viewer into the past. In reality, as a work of art, in integrity it works only to represent the soviet as vivid and active regime.
Revulsion, contradistinguishing between ours and yours, delusion of including new and new lands in the fence, which was the reason why the Soviet Union collapsed, has been transferred to the post soviet reality and is acting on a private level (on the level of egoist ownership instincts in a wild capitalism). Today, when the borders disappear all over the world, this fence inhereted from the past emphasizes its anachronic nature.

This project was presented in Yerevan, Armenia, in Vien, Austria, in Beijing, China.
