Installations, costumes and stage design for the traditional Russian festival Maslenitsa.
Gorky Park, Moscow, 2018
The sun is a key symbol of the Maslenitsa festival when, according to Russian tradition, people celebrate the imminent end of winter by burning a scarecrow. This ritual represents saying goodbye to all the winter hardships and cold, welcoming the long-awaited spring, warmth and sun. For this reason a huge 6-metre yellow sun was positioned in the gate of the main entrance to Gorky Park.
