Symposium of wooden sculpture “GENESIS” (Ulan-Ude)
GENESIS is an interdisciplinary art project about finding and building new relationships between tradition and modernity, man and nature.
The Genesis project is aimed at rethinking tradition, introducing new knowledge and approaches to creating a work of art into artistic processes.
As part of the symposium, I created a wooden art object “Mezen Horse” – an image of the fate of the Old Believers.
The shape of the Mezen horse from the painting characteristic of the Russian North is taken as a basis. But here, in the art object, the horse is rather a generalizing symbol, a dialogue between the cultures of the North and East of Russia.
The art object is installed near the Old Believers’ complex.
