| ART | > ART by REQUEST

An engineer from the Traffic Department of the City of Moscow saw my 2013 show at the 3rd Street Gallery, the city’s art gallery and asked me to create a piece of art using junk from their “bone yard” at the maintenance yard and shop. Almost everything in the piece came from the bone yard: an emergency yellow light bar, a broken steel casting of a once-important sign, a one-way and a school crossing sign, a nine-reflector warning marker, broken pipe pieces, a very rusted half pipe, a miniature baseball, some worn out chain, a rusted corrugated disk and an inexplicable, rusted clothes basket from an abandoned washing machine. One might ask, “Where the hell did that come from?” Good question.
