For me, this work is a study of a particular place I was in for two weeks. Finding myself among the village’s junk, consisting of various
rusty metal pieces, wooden boards with nails and other things, I wanted to make artistic sense of this environment. Tings usually say
a lot about space, but here it seems as if they live their own independent life, hopelessly mired in infnite entropy. Afer many diﬀerent
manipulations with objects and surroundings, I fnally found an important detail that helped me to construct a kind of dialogue between
all the objects surrounding me. Te item was a motorcycle helmet. It turned out that this helmet belonged to my uncle, who had once
ridden his motorcycle. However, this fact from the past has no eﬀect on the mysterious relationship of all these things to each other in the
present. For me, this helmet is more of an artifact or archaeological fnd, containing the mysterious potential of arcane mystical stories and
rituals, in the spirit of a dark American hinterland culture famous for its satanic cults, where on the marshy soil of Louisiana they have
been performed by Rednecks, Cajuns, Manecheans and other religious sects since the time when the Sun King of the Catholic EmpireLudovic 14 kicked out heretics, criminals and crooks from the continent… Tere is such a legend about the Ghost Rider.
Motorcycle stuntman Johnny Blaze, made a deal with the demon Mephisto to save his father’s life. His soul was tied to a creature called
Zarathos. Using the powers of Zarathos, Johnny was transformed into a ﬂaming skeleton, with a hellish motorcycle and the ability to emit
hellish ﬂames from any part of his body. He was the arbiter of justice.
