1/1.000.000

2011

Carbon drawing on paper, 30x20, series of 19 works (charcoal on paper, 86x61, version of 2014).

The work 1/1000000 was realized in the framework of Evgeny Fiks project «Portrait of 19 million» dedicated to people who were Soviet Union Communist Party’s members on the eve of its ban in 1991. The heroes chosen by Ekaterina Lazareva represent a one millionth of approximate number of Communist Party members at those times. The nineteen heroes are representatives of the current Russian power (by the August 2011) – the President Dmitry Medvedev, the Prime minister Vladimir Putin, two First Deputy Prime Ministers and seven Deputy Prime Ministers, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Minister of Internal Affairs, the Minister of Emergency Situations and the Minister of Education, the Head of Presidential Administration, the Chairman of the State Duma and the General prosecutor. The fact of their membership in the Communist party is omitted in most of their official biographies. The artist addressed these high-ranking officials asking to answer a standard questionnaire of the project about when and why they joined the party and left it. In response there were received 3 confirmation of the letters registration, 1 letter addressing a non-informative web-site, 1 advice to address the CPRF (the legal successor of CPSU) and only 1 answered questionnaire.
