In August Mayana Nasybullova went to the Radiance Center for Contemporary Art residence in Apatity.
‘Upon my arrival to Apatity I was walking around and found a huge metal structure near abandoned unfinished dormitory. In the Soviet times it used to be an information stand, but now it has become a derelict, rusty thing with sawed-off edges. I saw a great artistic potential in it', the artist says.
With the idea of making an artistic intervention in the courtyard space, Mayana asked the Centre's team for help. As a result she created an abstract painting based on aurora, with a quote from a poem by the key representative of the 'Siberian underground' Yegor Letov.
