ARCHIPELAGO - BUILDING FROM P

Project: 2017

 

Archipelago is a commissioned project for Le Frac Centre, Val de Loire and will be part of the museum´s permanent collection.

 

Building from P
There must have been dreams of Friction,
and a feeling of gratefulness
The gravity and the cross
To be constructed in timber and glass

 

 

Petro Kalnyshevsky


Kalnyshevsky (1690-1803) was exiled to Solovets Island in the White Sea in 1776, by the order of Catherine II, for his defense of the Cossack Host and the New Sich. He was kept in isolation until his release in 1801. After his release he remained on the island where he died as a monk at the age of 110.
