what and

why?

- "MY AREA OF INTEREST IS ATTENTION TO ECOLOGY THROUGH UNDERSTANDING CONSUMER CULTURE AND ITS IMPORTANCE FOR THE FUTURE RIGHT NOW.

 

INDUSTRIAL FACILITIES OFTEN BECOME MY PLACE OF WORK, I LIKE TO EXPLORE THE EVOLUTION OF SPACE AND PRODUCTION METHOD. THE APPEARANCE OF ART ON THE TERRITORY OF SUCH OBJECTS ACTIVATES THE REVIVAL. I AM CLOSE TO THE IDEA OF PROGRESS AS A NATURAL AND ORGANIC CONTINUATION OF THE EVOLUTION OF THE BIOSYSTEM, IN WHICH THE NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL HARMONIOUSLY COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER, AND THE HISTORY OF THE SCENE ACTS NOT ONLY AS A MEANS OF EXPRESSION, BUT ALSO INFLUENCES THE FORMATION OF THE FUTURE CULTURAL LANDSCAPE.

 

AS AN ETHICAL POINT OF SUPPORT, I SEE AN IMPORTANT ECOLOGICAL ATTITUDE TO THE ENVIRONMENT AS A SPACE FOR THE REALIZATION OF HUMAN POTENTIAL, IN WHICH THE SENSORICITY OF INTERRELATED EVENTS THAT GENERATE EACH OTHER TO THE HIGHEST POINT OF TANGIBILITY.

 

THE MAIN METHOD OF MY ARTISTIC LANGUAGE IS THE PRESENCE OF ANTHROPOMORPHIC CHARACTERS IN WHITE SUITS IN MY WORKS. THE PROTAGONISTS IN MY WORKS REPRESENT A PROTOTYPE OF A MAN OF THE FUTURE WHO CAME TO OUR WORLD TO UNDERSTAND THE PRACTICES OF MODERN SOCIAL RELATIONS AND SHARE THE EXPERIENCE OF LIFE ON THE PLANET. THE ROLE OF THE PROTAGONISTS IS MANIFESTED THROUGH THE OBSERVATION OF SPACE, MIMICRY AND AESTHETICS OF INTERACTION."
