JOURNEYS TO THE COUNTRYSIDE. VOLUME THIRTEEN

145. 5 Banners (Bagan)

146. 5 Banners (Bagan)

On the edge of a forest, in an aspen forest, 5 banners were hung (the sizes ranging from 615x70cm to 730x70cm); the white letters on the red fabric were in the English language (the text is taken from the book T.N. Shpankova, "Sergiev Posad. Shtatnye Slobody", 2012):

Further along Ogorodnaya street, at no. 14, there is the bungalow in which the Gorbachevs lived, making boxes for toys

In the neighbouring house of the German woman Wetzger, no. 6, a certain Padyuk lived, working in the dog kennel on Boulevard street

The hostess and the lodger were arrested at the very beginning of the war. Wetzger for not having returned the receiver and listening to the radio

Opposite the house of the Smirnovs is an unusually fancy house, no. 12, with a toreutic kokoshnik. Who built it remains unclear

In house no. 1 lived the Pleshanovs during the 1920s, in house no. 3 the Rachmanov family. In house no. 11, the Chumakovs and Kiselevs once lived

During the hanging of the banners and for some time after, a phonogram was played via portable speakers, which one of the viewers was holding in their hand. The phonogram was a recording of AM reading other texts from the same book by Shpankova, fragments from the books "Prichinnost' i Karma v Buddizme" [Causality and Karma in Buddhism], 2003 and "Arkhitektura Indokitaya" [Architecture in Indochina] (section "Birma"), 1998. Hereafter the viewers were distributed factographical laminates (AM's collage from 2007, "Golyginsky Spusk"), the factographical book-object V. Pauli "Mezonnaya Teoriya Yadernykh Sil", 1947 with the text about the action glued inside, and a leaflet of S.S. Mikhailov "Sergiev Posad i Staroobryadchestvo", 2008). The banners were left behind at the place of action.
