Caged Light­ning is a pub­lic sculp­ture com­mis­sioned by Leningrad Cen­tre for Con­tem­po­rary Cul­ture in St. Pe­ters­burg, Rus­sia. The sculp­ture was in­stalled in front of the in­sti­tu­tion due to an event of the first pub­lic open­ing, which took place in De­cem­ber 2014. The ob­ject is a trib­ute to the early XX cen­tury Russ­ian Avant-garde move­ment as well as an at­tempt to in­ter­vene into a clas­si­cist style of St. Pe­ters­burg’s city cen­tre.
