The cities of the future, rather than being made out of glass and steel as envisioned by earlier generations of urbanists, are instead largely constructed out of crude brick, straw, recycled plastic, cement blocks, and scrap wood
Typography Center for Contemporary Art presents first solo exhibition of Elena Kolesnikova Voskhod Cooperative.
Voskhod Cooperative is devoted to specific areas of post-Soviet cities — living garage cooperatives. For over a year Elena Kolesnikova researched architecture and structure of these areas, which reflect social processes of all contemporary cities such as urbanisation, migration, unequal income distribution, unemployment, etc. Central object of the exhibition is an installation of a two-storied garage building accompanied with videos of garage cooperatives’ street views, interviews with inhabitants, architecture graphics, and panorama.
Curator Elena Ishchenko.
The exhibition also includes a film City-Garage (2020) by Hochesh (Want) art group (Varvara Gevorgizova, Ivan Shatravin-Dostov, Alexander Krifaridi). The film is commisioned speccially for the exhibition.
Installation: Pavel Kolesnikov, Vyacheslav Kaygorodov (inhbitant of garage cooperativ), Gleb Rostovtsev, Stepan Subbotuin, Eugeniy Rimkevich.
Design: Ruport Creative Agency.
