The installations by Georgi Tryakin-Bukharov prove that it is possible to produce the unexpected meanings by using absolutely any items. His gigantic Nuf-Nuf is made of a fridge, enameled bowls and a couple of old globes. Eyes being the globes – what a remarkable metaphor it is! Any subject can contain the entire planet in itself – all it takes is you need to think about your place in this world. And there are so many findings in Carmen! The passionate movement of her feelings and the quickness of changes of her hearty partialities are smartly distinguished by various multicolored toy cars. It takes some time to be spent in front of this production to be able to notice all the metaphors that the artist's imagination had spread all over it.
Saken Narynov is an architect and an urban planner, an inventor and an artist in the area of the impossible who does not work with garbage. Some solid steel bars and sheets are required for his works; he uses them to create some beautiful structures from such amusing objects as the Moebius tape or the Klein bottle. Some objects are the nontransparent perpendicularly parallel tunnels smartly twisted in the space. The dispersion of lines, planes and turns activate the environment and broaden the exposure zone up. Other objects are the reticulate and lacy spheres, rings, "vessels" with various entwinements, crossings and mutual entries. The model can be represented by a monolayer or multilayer structure that refers to physics and metaphysics of the multidimensional world. Not without reason did Martin Gardner, an American scientist, once write to him: "No one has ever used the way you had looked at space and time". Glancing at these objects purifies one's brain. If urban space was full of such artifacts, our school kids would have had fewer problems with studying math.
Aside from the gurus of Contemporary Art their younger comates also participate in this project. One of them is the Nebula creative team, Ruslan Kadirov and Alexei Filimonov. Nebula guys played a little with the framework of a car covered with layers of green turf. Will the eternal nature win over humanity's temporary toys? The turf got dry soon and a sorrowful thought is evolving – that garbage may win. Myocardium Flower is the scheme of a cardiac muscle with a flower inside welded from metal bars. The metaphor is entirely poetic. Awaiting Rebirth is remarkable as well – a soft installation made from two transparent spindles (one a tree) and many multicolored duralumin tubes (on the ground). It is a hint pointing out the unpredictability of metamorphoses and the transformations of organic and nonorganic matters.
Alexei Filimonov makes us happy with his paradoxical Proving Ground Heron — the gigantic lotus flower and a graceful heron made of something unknown that found they way out through the old tires. The topic of a strange mutualism of the humanity's trash and the living forces of nature finds itself in it as well. Besides, only human beings are capable of admiring a bird and build the endangered species from garbage. The transparent Balyk and Salamaleykum made from wire attract owing to their transparent lives: you need to look carefully to distinguish their silhouettes in the surrounding flow of light. The open hand is crying for help having freed itself for a single moment from the accumulating municipal wastes.
