Dreamer - a figure of a sleeping worker lying on floor - by the artist Arseny Zhilyaev has been removed from the exposition of Modernism Department of the State Tretyakov Gallery on Wednesday, April 3.

      As the artist has reported on Facebook, it was decided to remove the work from the exposition for the reason that some of the visitors, having mistaken the art object for a real person, had fainted.

      According to Arseny Zhilyaev, the order on withdrawal of the work was signed by the director of Tretyakov Gallery Irina Lebedeva. The artist has reported that he does not know details, however is assuming that it “is something like censorship”.

      The press service of the Tretyakov Gallery has confirmed that the work of art was really removed from the exposition Documents and Monuments, however, reported that the changes had been preplanned. Meanwhile the exposition, which was opened in April, 2012, was expected to run in its current form until the end of August, 2013.
