About this project

LOVE is the first Ukrainian art-project that got in the official program of the Art festival Burning Man 2015. The author is Alexandr Milov ( Mel). The sculpture demonstrates a conflict between a man and a woman as well as the outer and inner expression of human nature. The figures of the protagonists are made in the form of big metal cages, where their inner selves are captivated. Their inner selves are executed in the form of transparent children, who are holding out their hands through the grating. As it's getting dark (night falls) the children chart to shine. This shining is a symbol of purity and sincerity that brings people together and gives a chance of making up when the dark time arrives. Taking into account the situation in our country (that is at the start of civil war) this gets even a deeper meaning. 

The composition is called LOVE.

Risks and challenges

The overall dimensions of the composition are the following: 1750 x 770 x 500 cm. The figures of a man and a woman are executed from metal tubes 5.7 cm in diameter. The construction is sectional (can be folded) and can be put together from compact elements fixed by steel bolts. The figures of children are made of steel rod and a mat half transparent plastic, bent and curved with the help of vacuum forming. Inside the children there are fluorescent lamps that are charged by energy of external gasoline generator. General weight of the sculpture is 4, 5 tons. The fate of the sculpture after the festival. There are two options. The first one is the following: we take back the sculpture to Ukraine and fix it in the central city park of Odessa city. For this we are to cover the sculpture additionally with zinc and paint it in order to safe it from corrosion as well as to make ground and support the sculpture with electricity. The second one is to fix it in any other worthy place - on the US territory.
