"The commentary on Valery Orlov's photographic exhibition was born out of an unfunny Moscow joke: "Mind the closing doors. The next station is China Town, platform on the right, Chinese on the left. On the left - Bei Jing, the Ming and Ching Dynasties, Feng-Shui, Tiananmen Square, the ForbiddenCity, Gugun - the residence of 24 emperors, Bertolucci, World Heritage list, tourists... On the right - Moscow, the Kremlin, World Heritage list, Red Square, and a couple of paces away the artist Orlov on an architectural shoot of doors and windows, bricked-up, painted-over, nailed-up, covered with grilles, the closed city, Gorkii, Vladivostok, Arzamas-16, Magadan, with not a single prisoner in shot..."'(Yu. Avvakumov )
