Room for rent - the sign of maturity or the sign of decadance ?

Few days ago 11th international Kaunas biennial has started. I am not attracted to modern art but heard that in recent years Kaunas biennial attracts famous artists from all over the world. But this year events (at least some of them) it is impossible not to observe since this year biennial is devoted to the monuments, The main topic of the biennial is called "Exists and not exists". For the opening ceremony Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi created installation "Room for rent". For the installation the artist used not simple monument but one of the main symbols of the country - Freedom statue. So for two months Freedom monument will look like this:

One of the most interesting moments is the fact that the installation is free for visitors.
