1000×1000 mm black and white posters, 250 x 250mm paper cases, 2018

Result of a virtual walk on Google map focused the architecture in the former Socialist Republics of Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tadjikistan, Turkmenistan). Collection of found pictures of Post-modern, neoclassical buildings, inspired by soviet and Islamic patterns that testifies the new capitalist extravaganza. An ode to a variety of monuments : memorials, playground areas, malls, presidential palaces, etc. This makes possible the historical and political analyse of the succession of the several empires and to understand the ethnic and religious mosaic of the region.
