Slavs and Tatars
Molla Nasreddin the antimodern

2012, fibre-glass, steel, 157 x 165 x 88 cm

Slavs and Tatars’ favorite dervish and retroactive mascot, the Sufi super-hero faces the past but trots into the future on his donkey, like any wise man would and should. By requiring children and adults alike to hold his belly instead of his back, Molla Nasreddin the antimodern offers lessons on time, progress, and history at no extra cost for those looking for a simple ride.
