A new contemporary art object creating participative performance took place on April 14 at the GUM-Red-Line Gallery. Together with Oleg Kulik – one of the first internationally acclaimed Russian performance artists - participants of the master class created a sculpture from many different elements in a short period.
In Oleg Kulik’s words: “When you mold a sculpture, you start thinking about reality borders. Is it self-sufficient due to its shapes, my incredible input? Or is it all surreal? Is it a projection of myself, a structure? Do people see what I am seeing? You can transfer all your energy, positive or negative, through your fingers, imprint it in the clay, and bake it. Spontaneous molding will open all the problem issues and will also demonstrate the borders of the genre.”
