"Temporary Monuments" is the result of two years of research and performative practices provoked by the historical situation (for the last few years Fyodor has been living between Moscow and San Paulo). Seven monuments coincide with the seven scenes of the slaves
sufferings, both borrowed from history and recently recorded in Brazil. Each of the scenes is a reflection of intentional or unintentional attempt to rip the chains, break the shackles or speak out loud. Despite the fact that the artists work is based on the socio-cultural context of Brazil, the project involves the global problems and has the universal significance.
