Worker IV

Worker 03.202 Village Gamarjveba (Victory), Dedoflistskaro Georgia had the highest conscription rate in World War II, but 24% of the 300,000 conscripted were killed in the war against fascism. In 1946, the village of Uzundara in the Dedoplistskaro district was renamed "Victory" and a war memorial was constructed to commemorate those who died or were injured in the war, similar memorials were built in many other villages. Today the memorial has been turned into a landfill and a cowshed, this abandonment is perceived by the artist as a symbol of the intensified neo-fascist movements around us. By clearing the memorial, the performer seeks to restore meaning to the sacrifices of his ancestors and to restart the discussion on the growing extremist movements in social spaces.
