Times New Roman. Эпизод 3: Москва

Kandinsky Prize announced its winner of Young Artist: Project of the Year.

Photo project «Times New Roman. Эпизод 3: Москва» (Times New Roman. Episode 3: Moscow) by Timofiei Parshchikov (son of Olga Sviblova, the Moscow House of Photography) depicts pseudo-classical sculptures sold at roadsides to elite village community of Russian nouveaux riches who like Romans back in their times adorn their villas with marble-white gods and goddesses sculptures. Will this kitsch later on become an aesthetic symbol of its epoch (also as Roman art copying Greek one or 20th century Empire style copying Roman art, all considering to be kitsch back in their times) is something that the artist predicts.
