The abandoned building on photos below is a hospital that treated soldiers in the WW2. Its decaying facade was used by Timofey Radya, an urban artist from St. Petersburg, for his Eternal fire, an anti-war installation. He portrays six Russian WW2 heroes in a technique that lets you know how he feels about all of it. On big wooden panels he outlined their faces with bandages of different density, to produce different tones. He then threw Molotov cocktails at them, setting the bandages on fire. Afterwards, he would remove the bandages, let rain wash down excess burn marks, and hang them on the hospital’s wall – their scorched faces to be a warning for our generation.
