Baikal-fest: Sculptures Of Trash

A pyramid and sculptures of trash were built on Olkhon. 


Weird sculptures and ten-meter high pyramid have emerged on the island. All are made from household waste, which never grows less on Baikal. Crocodile, knights and other mysterious figures – these all are the creatures of famous designer from Irkutsk, Anatoly Dmitrakov. Yet they do decorate not a park or some other public place, but a real landfill on Olkhon Island. The artist has never worked with such material before. “However, the purpose of this strange action,” Anatoly says – “is not to decorate the island, but to attract the attention of tourists and locals to the problem of pollution on Lake Baikal”. This ecological event was the beginning of festival of contemporary art called "Baikal FEST 2013". It is attended by well-known artists, designers, and volunteers. This year the organizers have decided not just to remove the trash, but to use it in creation of something extraordinary.
