A series of works on ovankol wood has become an addition to Nastya Miro's large project "Bride for Buran". In this series, the artist talks about his journey through the Baikonur Cosmodrome, to the hangar with Buran. To achieve her goal, Nastya had to overcome 30 km across the steppe, pass the abandoned and active sites of the cosmodrome in the heat of +50 ° and go unnoticed by the military and security. In this series of works, you can see abandoned cars, buses, police loaves, armored personnel carriers, spaceport sites on the horizon, and even scorpions. All this is material collected by the artist from different parts of the cosmodrome. Scorpions are not used to meeting people here, in the midst of a dangerous expedition, Nastya was bitten by a scorpion, it took a lot of effort to collect material and return back. Now, on the vast areas of the Kazakh steppe, the remains of an entire era of a great space power are stored. In fact, in addition to two launch sites, the cosmodrome is an abandoned and dilapidated site, where thousands of people worked until the collapse of the union. The stories of these people and traces of their lives can now be seen in the artist's sketches from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. The material ovankol was not chosen by chance. It is very similar in texture to the steppe. The objects seem to grow out of this texture in the same way as they appeared in front of the artist, blocking the path and telling each their own story.
