Vadim Kosmachev. Breathing Sculpture

New Tretyakov, Krymsky Val, 10, halls 80–82
may 18 august 19

It is a retrospect exhibition of Vadim Kosmachev (b. 1938), a sculptor, a graphic artist and a painter. His oeuvre belongs in an equal degree to the culture of three countries: Russia, Germany and Austria; he has lived and worked abroad since 1979.

In 1965, Kosmachev graduated from the S.G. Stroganov Moscow Vocational School of Arts and Crafts; at the turn of the 1970s, he became one of the main proponents of Modernism in Soviet monumental and decorative art. In 1979, Kosmachev emigrated to Germany where he worked for many years, creating sculpture for urban spaces. After moving to Austria, he focused on issues of the mutual influence between art and science, problems of biomechanics and techno-organics in their application to art forms. He thus conceived the idea of “breathing” shapes and “solar sculptures,” which acquire movement being exposed to sunlight. 

A comprehensive exhibition represents all periods of Kosmachev’s career in arts and includes over 80 sculptured works, paintings, graphic sheets, pieces of porcelain, and videos.

The exhibition is organized with support from the Austrian Cultural Forum Moscow.
