The "Blue Noses" art group, financially supported by the fund of Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, presented the "Siberia Ball" installation, which includes 12 grotesque portraits of well-known people, who influenced the history and culture of Siberia, with basketball baskets attached to them. The portrait of writer Fyodor Dostoyevsky is at left.
