The Burden, installation
For the last eight years American artist Frank Williams has lived, worked and exhibited in Moscow and throughout Russia. His impressions of the Russian transition were first expressed in his dramatic metaphorical series titled “The Burden That is Me.” His current installation combines the large “Wheel” from that series and a site-specific selection of his photographs documenting his Russian experience. In ARC’s interior space, the enormous scale of “The Wheel” strongly contrasts with the intimacy and small scale of the photography. This contrast reflects vulnerability and the burden that the ongoing change has placed on this ancient country and her people.
