“Squad at ease” - an artwork from the project “Wafture of Hand”, which is symbolic of Soviet times, making allusions to Soviet times banners, to book illustrations of the conceptualists of the sixties. This is a very subtle stylization of past times. Yana Smetanina is famous for her many projects dedicated to society’s problems. The given painting is ironic, romantic, dedicated to pioneer childhood memories. But it doesn’t only consist of irony and memories from childhood. Enthusiasm is only visible at the front of the squad whilst at the back - nobody cares. The artist is as if warning of the falsehood and of the lies of Soviet times, about which legends and myths are nowadays made up.
