Along the Moscow circular road in Losiny Ostrov (Moose Island) district from the location where the last map was had been buried during the action “BEHIND C. A.” (see volume 4 of “Going to the country”) and to Yaroslavskoye highway (distance – 1.5 kilometers) the action’s participants stuck into the snow under trees (immediately adjacent to them) 10 canes with graphical images of V.Mukhina’s monument “The worker and the collective farm woman” glued onto each of them (picture facing inwards) (the original monument is situated opposite the VDNKh on Prospekt Mira which is continued by Yaroslavskoe highway).
The upper parts of the canes (the handle and the emblem under it) were covered with plastic bags. The canes were installed under trees at a distance of 100 to 150 meters from each other and 10 to 40 meters from the circular road’s outer rim.
The action was performed with intent that with the coming of spring and melting of snow the canes would fall.
(Of two canes discovered in the spring and a text similar to this one with a picture-emblem glued onto it an object was assembled and exhibited by A.M. at the second exhibition of “The avantgarde club” on Avtozavodskaya. M. Chuikova participated in the search for the canes).
