Делаем Витраж Искусством


The installation is a series of the mirror objects which are the exact replica of anti-riot shield Vitrazh-AT* in scale 1:1.

When the viewer sees their reflection in the mirror shields, they can identify themselves as participant of the protests in opposition to the chain of the Special Forces fighters.

During the performance at the opening of the project the viewer was acting as an artist. They transformed the Vitrazh-AT* into Vitrazh** as piece of art throwing the stones and smashing the shields.

However the broken mirror is probably the focus of more superstitions than any other subject in the world is.
