This used to be a grand, concrete and rather lifeless space in the heart of Kiev. Full of monuments designed to inspire awe and respect. Now it is full of living monuments...huge constructions of canvas and wood, sprouting flags and photographs. Tents and piles of tyres provide shelter for the folks that still maintain a watchful presence there. Part carnival, part protest camp, part memorial to the people that died. Sobering, chaotic but very much a living, breathing space.
