One of the artist’s early works, which in the light of the events of spring 2020 turned out to be prophetic. Moscow metro passengers know this crowd at Kitay-Gorod station during rush hours. The crowd moves as one organism, swaying from side to side to the beat of slow small steps, because it is impossible to go differently. And the ancient horror seems to be hovering over her, erasing your identity, your hopes, your plans. Being in such a crowd is like swimming underwater without a scuba gear. The only thing that does not panic is the hope that this will end.
The work was done in broad, crude strokes, emphasizing an anxious expectation, a state of uncertainty, insecurity and confusion of feelings.
