White steam floats upwards in a flow­ing move­ment. In the midst of pow­er­ful indus­tri­al facil­i­ties, a man cleans his work clothes with an air hose. Three trem­bling steel cables pro­trude from a grey met­al build­ing. A dark mono­lith stands in a deep green for­est land­scape. Clink­ing met­al nois­es come from some­where, caus­ing a spread­ing echo.

A white car­go heli­copter takes off above a tem­po­rary land­ing site. In Objects and Arti­facts (2019) tableaus of dif­fer­ent post-Sovi­et sub­jects from the Arc­tic zone of Rus­sia meet. The con­glom­er­ate of impres­sions shows a space notched by many eras, the ori­gin of which stretch­es from the indus­tri­al­iza­tion of the Sovi­et Union to the present day.
