«Bronze about Mandelstam». Andej Krasulin
Opening of a monument-installation "BARACK" and presentation of the sculpture "Bronze about Mandelstam". Osip Mandelstam is the Knight of the Poetic Word. It is known as the most cosmic of Russian poets of the XX century. "His earthly life is a trial of his soul on this side of the border. We can only guess about the unbearable dissonance in which he existed - between his genuine cosmic homeland and devastatingly humiliating Russian life in 1930s. Isn’t it the potential differences that stroke the sparks of his poetry? ... " (L. Ulitskaya). This cosmic Knight of the Word sacrificed his life to complete his knightly mission. One of the best poets of the XX century died of typhus in the transit Vladperpunkt camp. A. Krasulin created more than 60 plastic objects, each of which is the fixation of his thoughts in the process of communicating with Mandelstam’s poetry. Under the project "KNIGHTS SERVING THE MISSION OF ART" the monument-installation "Barack" is not a monument to the poet but rather a tragic symbol of the poet's life.
