Igor Makarevich has created several projects dealing with the history of Borisov, a character he invented, a modest Soviet accountant in a wood-processing industrial complex, who due to severe mental and sexual disorders dreamed of changing into a tree.
The wooden Borisov tries to detonate the early projects of Makarevich and Yelagina. For example, their history about the proletarian writer Novikova-Vashentseva, who was identified with Buratino (Russian Pinnochio); or the story about surviving in the conditions of a Russian winter, where Buratino played the role of the keeper of fire as a means of combating the cold.
All these parallels and even the quietest responses were heard by the artists, thoroughly documented and isolated into particular themes. Here the miracles of culturological eugenics takes place: totalitarian myths clash with the Russian avant-garde, religion and fabulous images; Buratino – Borisov-Vashentseva and others merge into a rumbling semantic lump and fly away to a suprematic abyss.
