Gregory Orekhov：格雷戈里·奥列霍夫(Gregory Orekhov)的 “十字路口”(Crossroads)作品位于莫斯科Nikolina Gora地区，由涂着标线漆的聚碳酸酯制成，横跨河流，似乎没有尽头。它象征着选择和命运的转折，最终走向生活注定的道路。它是一个空间和时间交织的地方。通过这幅作品，艺术家提出了社会、道德和环境行为的问题。
Gregory Orekhov：Gregory Orekhov’s “Crossroads,” made of polycarbonate and painted over with marking paint, is a crossing across the river, among fields which seemingly have no end. This land art object is located in the Moscow region, in the area of Nikolina Gora. With this work, the artist raises the question of social, ethical and environmental behaviour. The symbolic meaning of crossroads deals with choice, a twist of fate that establishes the preordained path in life. It is a place where space and time intertwine.

The 21st century has faced itself with acute problems of capital constructions, which contradicts the basic principles of urbanism and summons a lot of controversy and discontent among local residents. In pursuit of non-ecological development of the economy, the authorities allow more and more ground to be built upon, the nature of which is illegally destroyed for the purpose of self-gain without any clarity or thought. “Crossroads” is an attempt to turn the world’s attention towards heritage preservation and to remind people about the ability of choice. Gregory Orekhov stands at the crossroads between the quiet, foggy natural world and an impending catastrophe. The object is situated at the intersection of historic events that took place here at the time of the Second World War, and those that are yet to come.
This installation is not a personal reflection, more so, it is something that each of us encounters on a daily basis. This is about the unrestrained transformation of the space around, because of which, tomorrow, we can forever lose memorial places, favourite facades, birch groves, and fields that stretch into infinity, for the sake of saturation of the capitalist machine.
