This project demonstrates the fate of socialist industrial objects in the contemporary world. Monumental, formerly grandiose ideas materialized in the architecture of factories and plants, the ideology of labor and the public good expressed in the forced building up of industrial muscle appear today as ruins rather than as a significant heritage. In his photographs, Gentsis returns to the utilitarian aesthetics of the past and insists on the need to preserve the cultural memory of the vanished era and of the last days of the ZIL factory. The exhibition features 17 large-scale works whose narratives are built upon the contradiction between the concept of socialist utopia and the realities of everyday life.
