Starting July 17, a monumental sculpture “The Gates of Versatility” by British author Yunus Safardiar will be exhibited for the first time in Russia on an open area in front of the Vostok Tower of the Moscow City Federation Federation complex. The sculpture was exhibited 11 years ago in the Royal Park of London. Now it has been moved to the Business Center of the Russian capital and installed at the foot of the highest skyscraper in Europe.
The shape of the sculpture resembles a cloud that has descended to the earth, which consists of separate spheres that form a single whole. This bronze mirror "cloud" takes in the surrounding space thanks to reflections and gaps of forms. The impressive size of the art object "Gates of Versatility" (3 * 3 * 3 m.) Corresponds to the futuristic range of architecture of Moscow City.
According to the author, "this cultural project is intended to show the community of cultural codes of the world, the unity of universal values, the meaning of harmony in the living space." The Gates of Versatility of Yunus Safardiar - the first sculpture installed in the space of the Federation Tower of Moscow City. The appearance of his work in Moscow City is logical: 20 years ago, the sculptor himself made the first brick of high-tech polymer for the ceremony of laying the foundation at the beginning of the construction of Moscow City by order of the honored architect of Russia, the author of the project MIBC Moscow City Boris Thor.
