The article examines the metaphors of the stopped time, defined as artistic ways of representing the Soviet century in post-Soviet discourse. The metaphor reveals the reflection of the “dying century”, fractally connecting the beginning of the twentieth century and the modern period in the integral semiotic field of artistic historiography (post)soviet era. The purpose of the article is to show the multidimensional nature of the metaphorical interchangeability of the semantic concepts “time is history” and “history is time”. The novelty lies in the study of artistic experimental world projects, in which metaphor fixes the models “time as an illusion” and “time as a body”. The authors consider various images of the “mental chronotope” in which the metaphor of stopped time captures special altered states of consciousness (ideological, cultural and personal) that form the artistic “myth of shaken consciousness” of the twentieth century: for example, Sukhbat Aflatuni — lethargy, Sasha Filipenko — alzheimer and coma, L. Petrushevskaya — a split personality, E. Vodolazkin — a tabula rasa state, etc. The article systematizes such metaphorical forms as time-consciousness, body-time, time-labyrinth, time-fractal, etc. A. Bitov emphasizes a special collective-incorrect time, designated as an exit from the time-labyrinth of the “cult of personality” into the general space of thawing truth. The mythosemantics of the metaphorical image of time-being and time-substance combines imperial time and thanatological parasemantics and becomes the subject of analysis on the material of the novels by Kior Yanev “Southern Mangazeya” and Henri Volokhonsky “Roman the Deceased”.

Keywords: metaphor of stopped time, Soviet era, post-Soviet discourse, imperial time, Sasha Filipenko, S. Aflatuni, A. Bitov, E. Vodolazkin, A. Varlamov, L. Petrushevskaya, N. Eshonkulov, Kior Yanev, Henri Volokhonsky.
