Artist Nikolay Polissky Wraps an Abandoned Soviet Building With Reclaimed Wood Off Cuts

Created by Russian artist, Nikolay Polissky and set within the landscape of Ugra National Park, the "SELPO Pavilion" is a large-scale sculpture which wraps around a decrepit Soviet building, which used to contain the village shop, but has stood as a ruin for the last 10 years. The rippling, undulating wooden jacket, which consists of reclaimed wood off cuts from Pollissky's previous projects transforms the former eye-sore into an exciting new space. The structure, whose title bears the acronym for The Rural Consumer Association in Russian, forms a creative environment for people of the community to interact with.
