This sculpture is a deformed Kremlin tower. The Kremlin has been the citadel of the Russian government for most of history. Stars were installed on the main towers of the building complex shortly after the Bolshevik Revolution. The tower simultaneously looms over my body and crumbles under its own weight. Kremlin stars symbolize the cultural heritage that I feel a need to accept. They are also the reminder and the remainder of both the wish and the failed promise of the Revolution.
