While thinking about something, Anna Zvyagintseva’s father twisted the foil automatically. Objects appeared under the influence of a semi-conscious creative flow and did not claim to be formalized in the form of “art”. The artist was fascinated by the process of the thinking, and in these “sculptures” she saw its fixation in time. Artistic experiments with figurines began with a museum window and continued in the sculpture. For the sculptural park, Anna enlarged one of the figures to a four-meter object. The “legs” of the figure suited perfectly, which, despite their monumentality, remain dynamic in the sculpture. In this way, the artist attached importance to the small, routine things.
