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.
