The starting point for this piece was the event from the 54 Venice Biennale in 2011. The government of Azerbaijan hid the sculptures of Idan Salakhova under pieces of fabric claiming that “the work was damaged during transportation”. The people responsible for the pavilion called this action an act of censorship contrary to the spirit of the apolitical artistic expression of the Biennale.
