Traditional 18th century heroes of porcelain compositions – the cowherd, dandies, ladies and gentlemen, all play a new role in the Europe of the third millennium.

 

Ethnic conflict between Europeans and their guests, authorities and oppositionists, has been transformed into its antithesis – love.
Characters and postures typical for gallant scenes, now performed by modern heroes – immigrants and the police, a skinhead and a Turkish woman, a business woman and a gastarbeiter, Chinese workers and manager, etc.

 

Seven compositions of porcelain placed on glass shelves in a cabinet made of Karelian birch.
