Statues can die, too. Or, as shown in Leninopad, they can be cleared away from their public sites in an alleged act of liberation. After the political upheaval in 2013, Jermolaewa embarked on a journey through Ukraine, travelling to diverse settings to document the fall of now-incriminated statues of Lenin.
