“Made in Ancient Greece, 1928” is second piece from series of freestanding video sculptures that introduces unlikely, from the conservative point of view, but perfect marriage of traditional art form and moving images/ Hollywood style that transformed later to style of Soviet cinema of Stalin era.

Ridiculing snobbishness of our conventional thinking, sculpture plays on principles of our vision, time that long term memory takes to pulls out cliches, and perfect proportions  of the Greek pottery.

Footage was shot in 1928-1936 by young cameraman Vyacheslav Alekseevich Burgov who later became legend of Russian sound technology.
