Description of the artwork «Orbital station»

We take off into space, ready for everything: to loneliness, to difficulties, to exhaustion, death. Modesty forbids us to say that, but there are times when we think very well of ourselves. And yet, if we examine this more closely, our enthusiasm will turn out to be a hoax. We do not want to conquer space, we just want to expand the boundaries of the Earth to the borders of space. For us, such and such a planet is as arid as the Sahara, another as frozen as the North Pole, and another as magnificent as the Amazon basin. We are humanitarian and chivalrous; we don’t want to enslave other races, we just want to bequeath to them our values and get their inheritance in return. We think of ourselves as knights of holy contact. This is another lie. We are only looking for a person. We do not need other worlds. We need one of our own worlds; but we cannot accept the ego as it is. We are looking for the perfect image of our own world: we go in search of a planet, a civilization that is superior to our own, but developed on the basis of the prototype of our primitive past. At the same time, there is something inside us that we don’t like to face, from which we are trying to protect ourselves, but nevertheless this remains, since we do not leave the Earth in a state of primordial innocence. We arrive here as we really are, and when the page turns over and this reality opens up to us - that part of our reality that we would prefer to convey silently - then we don't like it anymore
