In Olympia  Monosov takes Leni Riefenstahl’s film Olympia (1936) as a point of departure and investigates the bodily moments before the action and after the seconds between motionlessness and getting into shape. The artist scrapes out this sculptural moment of transition and works with the image of perfect bodies, standing united on the starting blocks and finishing line.
