Description of the artwork «"The traveling circus."»

...No one knows where he comes from or where he goes. But everyone knows about him since childhood, and everyone waits for him. When he comes, he stops in the main square of the town or in a clear field. Then all the doors open, people gather around him, and the feast begins. And then he leaves. And nobody knows where it goes and when it will return... The idea of the project is based on a fictional legend about a traveling circus that wanders the earth, bringing joy to people. People who have long forgotten what childhood is, who have forgotten how to be happy no matter what. But they all know the legend of the traveling circus. And in the depths of their souls remains the hope that he will come, and there will be joy, and there will be a holiday. And they're all waiting for it.
A project for the international competition for the best concept of an art object for the Shrovetide Festival 2022 in the Nikola-Lenivets Art Park.
