PETR BELYI

Six-Billion Years

This project is a deliberate attempt to perpetuate a purely temporary phenomenon. The work’s recovered objects existed in cities all over the world and are connected by an international language and simplicity of form repeated in different contexts: cross, circle, spot, line, silhouette. The duration of their existence was fleeting – from several minutes to several days. The resulting short-lived harmony could disappear forever. In this case, it is the artist’s task to observe, compare, and fixate.
