A personal exhibition of sculptor, architect and writer Vasily Klyukin In Dante Veritas will open in Afimall City, on the 6th floor. The exposition was created based on the first part of the Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri - Inferno. In Dante Veritas will be held with the support of the Russian Museum, Afimall City and the Panorama360 viewing platform.
The exhibition, which tells about the nine circles of hell, presents 27 works: 22 sculptures reflecting human vices (Anger, Fornication, Gluttony, Hypocrisy and others), 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse and Dante’s death mask. In addition, Vasily Klyukin created new objects especially for the exhibition in Moscow-City, and when designing the exhibition space, mapping installations will be used to convey the atmosphere of Inferno. In the "9 circle" in the hall of the Traitor, visitors can leave the initials of the people who have ever betrayed them. You can view the exhibition with a free audio guide in Russian and English.
Earlier, the In Dante Veritas collection was successfully exhibited at the Mikhailovsky Castle of the State Russian Museum (St. Petersburg). For three months, the exhibition was visited by about 200,000 people, which is an absolute record for street exhibitions of this museum. After Moscow, as part of a world tour, the collection will go to the Venice Biennale (Arsenal), and from there to the Vatican (Braccio di Carlo Magno St. Peter’s Basilica), to New York and Miami.
The collection is made using a special authoring technique "Living Sculptures", which is to maximize the preservation of mobility. Steel plates are assembled and disassembled as a designer, without any fasteners, creating the effect of an open book. Objects of Vasily Klyukin are called to tell about Good and Evil, evils and punishments. In Dante Veritas is not the visualization of “Inferno” by Dante and not an attempt to compete with the painters Sandro Botticelli or Albrecht Durer. The exhibition of Vasily Klyukin is a modern interpretation of the greatest poem of the world and the new names of the Horsemen who foreshadow the apocalypse: Overpopulation, Disinformation, Voracious prey and Pollution. How sins and punishments may look can be seen at the exhibition.
“We are glad to cooperate with such a talented sculptor who is able to realize any idea. Vasily Klyukin is an extraordinary person, a businessman who left everything and devoted himself entirely to art. His work is in the homes of private collectors and world celebrities, he exhibited in Monte Carlo, Cannes, New York. Now the Moscow public has the opportunity to read his message to humanity. “Living sculptures” In Dante Veritas fascinate, make you stop and really think, ”said the general director of Europe’s highest observation deck, Panorama360, Arthur Shakaryan.
In Dante Veritas is open for visitors from October 27th. The ticket price includes audio guide in Russian and English.
