ENDLESS CELEBRATION Installation by Mahmoud Bakhshi at the former site of the Lenin’s monument in Kyiv, Ukraine

October 31, 2016

The Endless Celebration by Mahmoud Bakhshi is a subjective ironical comment made by the artist on this particular historical moment that culminated in the radical action of removing the monument. In his previous works and projects, Bakhshi often looked at a role of a public monument as advertising for new ideas. The artist developed this project as an attempt to visually articulate the historical choice made by the Ukrainians when they removed the Lenin monument from its place. Installation is on view at the former site of the Lenin’s monument on Taras Shevchenko Boulevard in Kyiv. 7 November – 21 November 2016
