Red Theraphims by Dasha Polomar

Built a numerological matrix of the Lenin's mausoleum, Dasha translates figures related to the person and his last home (e.g. geolocation, size, opening date, etc.) into the unique rhythmic weaving pattern.
The work opens the series "Red Teraphims", in which Dasha explores the phenomena of existing "red communistic leaders" mausoleums and their influence on the historical and current environment.
Red Teraphims. Lenin.
