Project : Hell-Purgatory-Paradise / the Gerlovins

Gerlovina, Rimma


1 painting : acrylic over pencil, color ; 35 cm.
Consists of 3 sheets of gray cardboard, hinged together along the vertical sides to form a triptych, which opens to reveal a scene of flames under a blue sky. It is labeled at left: Hell Purgatory Paradise. Cardboard figures are affixed on the 3 levels. Each figure is labeled with a name, e.g., Castelli (in Hell), Walesa (in Purgatory), Trotsky (in Paradise). The verso of the triptych's left wing is stamped "Project" at the top and hand-painted with instructions for an installation based on this work.
