“We come to remind you that the Earth, the sun, planets and stars are living creatures,“ it says in the invitation to the summer festival, Nine muses of the Labyrinth, held in Nikola-Lenivets village, Kaluga region. This festival of ‘land art’ takes place every summer. Twenty architectural groups and individuals, among whom are Evgeny Asse, ‘Meganom’, Yury Grigoryan and many other talented and bright architects from Moscow, are all participating. Labyrinths created by nature or by humans are of equal interest. Muses in this context can be seen as nine different kinds of human perception. And though there are nine muses, there are many more labyrinths: Ariadne’s thread, solar circle, mirror reflections, pit of Babylon, sound, wind, way of water and so on. These are the allusions the artists are planning to interpret through installations set up right in the fields and forests and the banks of the beautiful Ugra river.
