Alexander Rukavishnikov (1950-).  Russian sculptor.
For sure many will feel it trivial, but it doesn't. Of course as Russian it is affected by the socialist realism! Anyway tell me if in any Western country are dedicated monuments to the athletes, perhaps in province, but they are always ignored.  It is much more interesting to do a scandalous installation with explicit sexual content, for instance blasphemous such as insulting the Catholic religion. Is not this what happens every day?
