Benjamin Phillips Nozdrachev’s exhibition, 104 x surface conditions / refuge – circadian rhythm = .. , is a combination of relocated ideas of land art and scavenged objects from a small forest.
The new Anti-Painting works are a continuation of an ongoing series based on an idea of isolation on a desolate planet. Within the search for refuge, the construction of functionality becomes reconsidered. Found material bearing marks of the elements that read like untranslated contemporary hieroglyphs are used to form a new aesthetic for basic architecture.
