This is an oil painting on the found soviet-era portrait of Lenin. The canvas is a little damaged.
Unframed painting 90 x 70 cm.
In 2015 the Ukrainian government banned all symbols and images associated with the USSR. But numerous oil portraits, sculptures, monuments and other images of Lenin began to be removed from public places decades before the "decommunization laws". What happened to the hundreds of thousands portraits of former Soviet leader? Many of them are already destroyed. Some of them had been left in attics or basements. I am looking for all these forgotten things and giving them a new life.
The series of transforming Soviet portraits of Vladimir Lenin are something in between the meditative practice and the research. Images from the deep subconscious give rise to different sences that inspire to thinking and reflection. One of the main subject of the series is the transformation of human into brand that becomes entity itself and continues it's evolution without own prototype. Lenin's ideas are not widely known, but the brand is known to everybody. Brand maintains its awareness, but gradually losing the content transforming into a ghost.
