Lexus Hybrid Art 2017

Lexus Dome

6 Sep. –  15 Oct.

This new work by Victor Polyakov — Cubed/Uncubed — is a cube-shaped sculpture with polygonal faces. In accordance with the concept of hidden art, when the object’s surface is touched, Cubed/Uncubed is awakened. The sculpture becomes completely transparent and only then reveals to the viewer the hidden object inside.

 

The object placed in the center of the sculpture is inspired by the art of origami. The aesthetics of origami — the Japanese technique of folding various figures from paper — is close to the skillful manual work of Takumi, the Japanese masters whose standards and rules serve as inspiration for the creation of Lexus cars.

 

 

By maintaining a balance between form and content, Viktor Polyakov’s work reflects the artistic principles of the Lexus project, and at the same time responds to the tasks set by Lexus Hybrid Art and the City Square program collaboration. This spatially-oriented sculpture blends seamlessly into the architectural context of Moscow City and reveals its potential.

Cubed/Uncubed is Polyakov’s third work in the genre of public art. This young Moscow artist and photographer became known to the public as a result of his bold dialogue with the art sphere

His transformation of space with the use of optical effects has become part of his signature style and has led to invitations to participate in several significant group exhibitions (the Moscow Biennale of Young Art, the “Wave Theory” exhibition in the Tretyakov Gallery on Krimsky Val, the “Spirit and Numerus” project at the Electromuseum), plus he also presented a personal project at Gogol Center in 2016.
