Welcome to global paradise
This installation, titled WELCOME TO GLOBAL PARADISE, addresses the question of current transformations of universal culture. The world is shrinking as the globalization fosters a new order that binds us closer together in a mutual dependence. What is the impact of such a globalization on our lives and culture? Some believe that it helps to increase interests in local cultures, but others think that it homogenizes the world. What is the new meaning of individualism and collective identity? With this question in mind, WELCOME TO GLOBAL PARADISE asks the audience to rethink where we are going.
What did Malevich discard one dimension for, why!? Was he enriching or impoverishing his world? And why is the suprematist world flat, while the world of nature is three-dimensional? But that came later! At first, before I'd had enough of lying in my "childhood cradle," Malevich was my god who created the icon of the twentieth century – his Black Square- which opened the way to a completely new perspective on the world.
Happening "Act with Maykovsky's Monument"
One July night in 1967 my friend Igor Gelbak and I set out for Mayakovsky's monument with two battles of quick-drying red paint. We had resolved to alter the monument and its environs, including the reaction of the people and the authorities in this performance.
Adam's Tower (Olam Adam Kadmon)
The ADAM'S TOWER or OLAM (world) ADAM KADMON is my first installation, which was done in Russia (1973 – 1977). This is the successive continuation of my theory of SUPERSIGNAL and the relation of it to KABBALAH. ADAM KADMON is an archetypal and primordial man. From this base GOD created ADAM-MAN. In the beginning of the CREATION there was a single spirit that was corresponding to the body of ADAM. This spirit merged with the CREATOR.
The Project for the Monument "Dollar", 1990
Proposed is the Project of the Monument showing the correct image of the "Hammer & Sickle"- one of the most important symbols of USSR- and the same image upside down, in which case we get a new representation, an American Dollar – a symbol of a post-communistic system.
SOTS-GEO – Manifest-Manifestation of the Procrustean Bed
Procrustes, the great robber-hero of ancient Greek mythology, engineered one of the most significant social revolutions by equalizing his victims before robbing them. By placing his victim onto an iron bed of certain dimensions (now known as The Procrustean Bed), and either cutting him down or stretching him out to fit, Procrustes set in motion a hitherto unprecedented process by which an elementary particle called the Socium was created. Such standardization of the particle was doubtless necessary if the victim was to be utilized as such, and it also made him understand that he was predestined to be utilized by an absolute equivalence established according to a single criterion.
