Burning Man

MAUSOLEUM OF REVELATIONS

On the centenary of Revolution, we propose to construct a pavilion inspired by the iconic token of Soviet era – Lenin Mausoleum, a symbol of power and a breakthrough realization of the utopian idea of human immortality. The pavilion is a reinterpretation of a tomb as an open and permeable space in between poles. Unlike the original tomb, Mausoleum of Revelations celebrates enlightened life. Each pole is a symbol of the man or a tree striving towards the sun and light.

Since the LOI was submitted, the artists have taken their idea of the Mausoleum of Resurrection much further into the contemporary and mystical space. We no longer believe we need the walls for our Mausoleum, as Burning Man is not the place to be confined within walls. The evolved Mausoleum is now an illusory structure, most closely resembling a man-made primal wood.
