Vladir Illyich Ulyanov, better known as VI Lenin, Chairman of the Council of People's Commissars, Premier of the Soviet Union from Dec 30th, 1922, to January 21st, 1924, and Chairman of the Council of People's Commissars of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic from Nov 8th, 1917, to January 21, 1924, remains an icon (for better or worse) of the world's first successful communist revolution.
The Propeller Group, a cross-disciplinary artist collective based in Ho Chi Minh City and Los Angeles, reinterprets the iconic image of Lenin to spectacular Colby Doppelgänger effect in a show on view at Lombard Freid Projects in Chelsea until tomorrow (the day after the anniversary of the October Revolution).

In preparation for Halloween scroll down to the bottom of this post and juice your spook bone with a quick look at Lenin's corpse. The "Internationale" has never sounded more haunting. . .
