In the hands of Alexander Dedov, the classical art of ballet and its usual aesthetics grow into a mystical composition that conveys an atmosphere of somber solemnity. The sculptor admires the strength, many years of hard work and tremendous physical endurance of ballet dancers. The work «Russian ballet» emphasizes the contrast between the incredible muscle tension up to painful, traumatic positions, on the one hand, and the visual lightness of movement, which makes the ballerinas seem fragile and as if they are flitting around the stage - on the other hand.
