The work “Colossus which Awakens” from the series "After Today" by the contemporary Ukrainian sculptor Egor Zigura was highly valued by collectors at auction New Now London Auction. PHILLIPS, which was held on 8th December, 2016. The sculpture was purchased for 20,000 pounds, this amount is more than three times higher than the estimate.
In his project “Aftertoday” Egor Zigura asks questions about a social conscience of mankind. There exist images of things stable, eternal, everlasting. These are things the one can look at for hours, quietly beholding their unique perfection. And what if these images could look at us? What would they see in our civilization, rapidly changing, weak, uncertain? So many things in the world are changing, not leaving a single trace. Probably, the mankind moves to nowhere?
