  • Lenin

    Video installation, 1:53 min., 2010. There have been many people who have changed world history. They've stopped time, fast forwarding and deforming it. By time, many phenomenon and ideology gave their places to names and symbols while losing their importance and value. I was lucky to be in East Germany where I found a Lenin statue near a Russian Casern near Weimar. This statue was clean and re- polished although the buildings nearby were demolished and torn apart. I knit a nearly 4 meter long rug with phosphorous colors and decided to cover the statue with it. There is an ideological illusion that remains.
