Thinking about the solution of the memorial sign to Pavel Sheremet, I did not want to come up with anything especially. And on the contrary, get rid of the so-called “artistic solutions” as much as possible. And the very place where the car with Pavel was blown up gave the idea of a future memorial sign. It was here at the crossroads that the explosion took place. Therefore, I went through the documentation and links about the tragedy and suggested placing a white marble stele at the intersection of these streets.
The crumpled sheet of paper is a symbol of the tragic death of Pavel Sheremet. The white color of the leaf is the field of the statement of the journalist, his life … And when he was enlarged to the size of a man’s height, he became his personification. The deformed inscription in the center of the monument can only be read from the facade. Taking a step to the side, we will see the nervous breaks of the letters, hiding the name of the journalist from the audience.
The memorial sign was symbolically unveiled at 7.45 a.m. on July 20, 2020, exactly during the explosion 4 years later.
