“Lenin lived… Lenin lived in Simbirsk, Kazan, Samara, Kokushkino, Shushensky, Petersburg, Petrograd, Kuokkala, Pskov, Zurich, Geneva, Berne, Munich, London, Paris, Krakow, Poronino, Razliv, Vyborg, Moscow, Gorky… In Ulyanovsk he was born and lived, in Petersburg he lived and worked, and in Gorky he lived and died. If we put together all the houses in which the leader of the world’s proletariat lived, whether briefly or for a longer period, we end up with a modest town. Where did he never live? Or not live for some time? That is, did he live at all, for obviously in Yefimov’s frames, as he photographed the places in which V. I. Lenin lived and worked, Lenin himself is absent. There are only the signatures under the photographs, and being guided by them we animate this architecture and these photographs with the name ‘Lenin’. Just as Golem without the name of God is a soulless little ball of red clay; just as a wax figure and a chicken leg – attributes of black magic which the artist Yefimov loves so much – without the ritual incantations are so much nonsense; both silver chloride and mercury vapour – prescriptional components of the photographic process – are an empty blackness without the red eyes of the photographer- alchemist, and also architecture – without the names of the builders and without the names of the residents – is an impersonal grey mass. Alive or dead.” (Yu. Avvakumov)
