The Moon on Earth, People in the Sky is a two-part installation connected by the poetic metaphor of memories and ideas by the Russian philosopher- cosmist Nikolay Fedorov. Embedded in the landscape the artwork evokes a sense of here-and-now by the viewers as in the surrealist Magritte’s painting.
Part1: Private Moon is an artwork in progress. It is a mobile installation and visual poem, telling the story of a man who met the Moon and stayed with her forever. Leonid Tishkov has taken it on a journey from 2003 until now.
Part2: Their Homes Are in Heaven is a new artwork in which photos from family albums of local people are portrait in a window frame.
