Mucha has made sculptures and installations since the late 1970s. They frequently take as their source objects and materials associated with museums, offices and industry. This box-like structure is reminiscent of the geometric forms associated with Minimalist sculpture, which contrasts with the felt-covered surface. Tilsit was the name of a city in East Prussia, which was renamed Sovetsk when it was annexed by Russia after the Second World War.
