From the Archstoyanie website:
"Since 2000 the village of Nikola-Lenivets has become an outpost of modern art, thanks to the work of Nikolay Polissky. Together with peasants, local residents from nearby villages, he has created set of objects around the village. It were armies of snowmen, towers made of hay, fire wood, rods. To look on the objects art experts, journalists and spectators have started to arrive. Polissky organized several art events, when he understood that it is time to take things more seriously. And in 2005 he made a decision to found the festival, called “Archstoyanie” (“Architectural Standing”)…The first festival “Archstoyanie” took place in Nikola-Lenivets in 2006.”
This year the festival will take place from July 27th to 29th, and will feature artists from Russia, Estonia, and France.
