Endless Celebration by Mahmoud Bakhshi

Temporary art intervention at the former site of the Lenin monument in Kiev, Ukraine. The installation Endless Celebration, which reflects on recent historical events in Ukraine, is a subjective ironical comment made by the artist on this particular historical moment that culminated in the radical action of removing the monument. It invites conversation about the symbolic role of a public sculpture by voicing in an exaggerated manner the opaque currents of post-Maidan society.

The installation is part of the Social Contract project curated by Kateryna Filyuk.

In collaboration with IZOLYATSIA, Kiev, Ukraine.
