A huge four-meter sculpture was erected in memory of the students who died there in 1959 at the Dyatlov Pass. The author of the monument is the new wave artist of the Russian avant-garde Grigoriy Emvi (real name Grigoriy Maslennikov).
Grigoriy graduated from the Nizhny Novgorod art school and at the age of 24 decided to devote himself entirely to art, now he lives in Moscow, then in London. He received wide recognition for his work in 2014 Manifesta 10 (St. Petersburg), Fair Enough (Biennale, Venice) and "The Golden Age of the Russian Avant-garde" (Manezh, Moscow). Gregory has two conceptual art collections - "Moment. True Faces" and "Human Souls". In October 2014, the art exhibition "Human Souls" was held at the prestigious Frieze Week in London.
He and his team had to drag the sculpture to the pass.
— What I experienced with the team over the past four days, climbing the Dyatlov pass, and not in vain or having only equipment and equipment with me, but taking on the trailer a four-meter sculpture, tool, cement, metal frame - a base created from boards on self-tapping screws, a flooring and a couple of boxes with disassembled elements of the sculpture, the erection of which on the pass in honor of the guys who once died - in fact, this was my mission, as well as the mission of the association of entrepreneurs "Leaders' Club", thanks to which I created the monument, and all my team, - said Grigoriy about the trial.
We show the work from all sides.
