Ilya Fedotov-Fedorov

Collection of pink book №2

This project is a rare experiment with implementation of art objects directly into the main exposition of the Museum. There were hidden installations, sculptural objects, collages created by Fedotov-Fedorov in the exhibition space. Strange creatures inhabiting the isolated world of the artist entered into dialogue with natural science objects. Everyone who comes to the exhibition was involved in the search — they needed to find artist’s interventions to permanent exhibition displays.

The pink book, according to the artist, is an image of the “not yet happen” red book. It includes natural objects artist is trying to save, believing that all of them will sooner or later disappear. Ilya Fedotov-Fedorov looks at natural objects and rethinks them. Natural elements, brought by the will of the artist to the status of works of art, highlight the amazing subtlety and fragility of this world.

The exhibition was supported by Fragment Gallery and was held in The State Biology Museum named after K. A. Timiryazev.
