The dwellers of the Ural capital liked the most curious monument of the Russia which have been opened to City Day,

The sculpture in Studencheskaya Street, 14 is called «the Monument to Curiosity. Who is there?». The Center of culture «Ural» was an initiator of installation of an unusual city art sculpture Established 1.5 years ago the center tryes to keep development of the innovative modern art in the region.

The composition plot is simple, but at the same time is not without originality. A man visited a woman, and their sights met in a door eye by accident. Though while both are parted by a door.

It is difficult to call this monument abstract, it is cognizable and laconic on execution. And thus it assumes many various interpretations. And the main thing strikingly differs from the majority too realistic and pattern bronze statues appearing in the streets of the Russian cities. Very graffic flat figures leave sensation of ease and kind humour, and «do not load» a spectator.

Victor Davydov is the author of the project, the participant of informal creative association «atomnaya provintsiya».

He is known as the artist and as action activist. In his works he used at times such materials, as building foam. This time he has suggested to make all-metal object from the welded steel sheets that is called antivandal variant. In spite of external grace, a monument weighs more one tone; it is made strongly, covered by an anticorrosive paint.

The idea of a similar monument not to the concrete person or the character, but to condition and feeling which everyone of us feels came to Davydov about two years ago. And, at first there was a plan of the composition. The artist was going to devote object to suspense (to alarm and surprise arising from a meeting with something unknown persons, in Hitchcock way). The sculptural group became «The monument to Curiosity» thanks to the co-ordinator of the project Evgenie Ivanov who has insisted on specification of the concept of the monument.

Ural electromechanical factory (known as «Three 3») strengthening defensive power of the country during decades undertook to embody a monument in metal.

While creating high technologies, including laser cutting have been used. Actually the monument has been made for one week.

On opening day almost one thousand people has come to take a look at the monument. Interested people have received comic «Certificates of the curious person» with the keyhole cut down in the document. After ceremony «the iron holiday» has taken place: smiths acquainted with secrets of hot forging, knights battled with swords in medieval fights without rules, public athletes from bent metal fittings and hammered in nails for the speed.

Art competition of planimetric sculptures from a wire in which grace of form and content was appriecieted has been conducted. The winners are Andrey Chernyshev (object and simultaneously a feeding trough for birds «Queen»), Sergey Chezganov and Tatyana Sekacheva (composition «Quixote»), Sergey Laushkin («Love»).
