Nizhny Novgorod

Empty place
Text: Elena Spirina

Nihil City.
It seems that we live like normal people: weve got Minin and Pozharsky, Volga and Oka, and Kremlin, and so on. Pushkin was here on the way.
But if one comes closer, looks into the eyes damn it!
But it doesnt care: Gods dew. Its all the same for it with its head bitten with a khokhloma spoon, the city of Zero situated in Russia. Whatever one misses there is nothing. For one and a half million people one and a half of a literary miscellany and two and a half of contemporary artists.
City NN there is such a place. An empty one. Splinters of someones ambitions crunch underfoot, but every year its easier to walk: the cultural layer is rammed, trampled down.
A dummy, trick, plaster cast Nihil city.
