NEVERCREW has been invited to Satka in Russia to be a part of Satka Street Art Festival curated by Fund Sobranie Moscow where they created a two “Baring machine” murals. First one is done on a massive wall on a residential building. It is located in the city of Satka, in the Oblast’ of Celjabinsk (Russia), a city which was funded as an iron mining factory and now built around a giant magnesite quarry positioned in the middle of hills and forests of the Ural Mountains. This is a place that well represent the relation between mankind and nature, the proportion between them and especially a connection based on the use of resources, on which are built the local life and structures.
This work is about proportions and imbalances, about awareness and involvement. Systems, as we know them, are human structures that often take directions that are far from human nature (and rights) and from the environment; from nature itself. This trend has led and leads to an emotional and intellectual detachment where everything becomes acceptable also when it’s damaging, where there’s no more perception of consequences and so no more perception of reality.
The second part mural called “Baring machine part 2”, it was painted in continuation in front of a hill which was created from the leftovers coming from the digging activities in the quarry.
Take a look below for a series of extra high-res images on these pieces while we wait to discover more Street Art from NEVERCREW.
