At the solo exhibition of Karelian sculptor Sergey Gapanovich in Moscow, gallery managers edited the captions to the exhibits due to the age limit and some of the stories were rewritten due to the requirements of the Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications (Roskomnadzor). Sergey Gapanovich reported this to the correspondent of 7x7 on February 10.

Exhibition "Stone Heads" by Karelian sculptor Sergey Gapanovich opened on February 5 in the Bogorodskoe Gallery of the Moscow Exhibit Halls Association. The exhibition is a series of sculptural characters; each character has its own story. The author composed and wrote the stories of the characters himself.

– All the fun started before the opening. The exhibit hall has rewritten half of the 10 stories. Some have undergone little changes, and some have been changed beyond recognition. The reasons are simple: Roskomnadzor and the age limit. We could only post five stories that were not edited,  — Sergey wrote on his Instagram page.

Anastasia Kamenskaya, the curator of the exhibition, wrote on her Facebook page that she had been told two days before the opening that the exhibition should have been changed to the 0+age limit.

— At this very moment, unexpectedly for everyone (including me), the story gained depth, turned into a text about the artist and power, about the choice of ways of speaking, about formally doing everything right and in fact – making it a complete mockery, about the content of the absurd in everyday life – and many other things, - Anastasia wrote. – Because when a grandmother drowns someone, it is violence, and when she hangs herself, it is not considered to be violence.

The gallery managers removed the stories about cultivating and taking narcotic substances, the passage describing a method of suicide, the phrase "the real taste of his lips", but kept, for example, the word "fool", the phrase about a mother who "has been hanging from the ceiling for six days", the story about a grandmother who drowns kittens (in the corrected version, the grandmother does not "drown" them, but "takes them to the pond"). Gapanovich did not allow the corrected captions to be placed, and the organizers prepared brochures with unedited stories, which were distributed to adult visitors, for the exhibition as well.

Sergey Gapanovich is a sculptor and businessman from Karelia, owner of famous coffee shops in Petrozavodsk, author of art object "The Valley of Hares", the participant of the first barcamp in Karelia.

According to the law "On Information", the information "about the methods of committing suicide, as well as calls to commit suicide", about the methods of drugs development, production and taking, places where one can get them, methods and places of cultivation of drug-containing crops is prohibited.
