Face It

City installation

In co-operation with Argo Peever

Installation was planned as a corridor with stairs leading to the eye-level of monument „Russalka“.

Monument with a figure of Angel of Death was erected in 19th century as a military memorial but is nowadays appropriated by local community as a popular meeting- and wedding-place and Russalka has become widely popular and beloved. This shift in meaning inspired the installation which would offer up close and personal, face-to-face encounter with the heavenly creature.

Project was commissioned by city installation festival LIFT11. It went as far as through whole engineering, planning and juridical process but was finally forbidden by local government.
