Leonid Tishkov

Private Moon, a ten year long project by Russian artist Leonid Tishkov, is “a performance of a lifetime”. A mobile installation and a visual poem, Tishkov tells the story of a man who met the moon and stayed with her forever. Traveling the world with his own private moon, Tishkov’s romantic journey has been captured by many photographers, including Boris Bendikov. “The moon is a shining point that brings people together from different countries, of different nationalities and cultures. And everyone who gets in its orbit does not forget it ever. It gives fairytale and poetry in our prosy and mercantile world.”When asked what is next after he has traveled the world, he replied “and then I will go to the Milky Way, the show must go on!”
