Mat Collishaw “Seria Ludo. Turning it into a Game”

Main Building

In 2017 we are expecting to host an installation project by Mat Collishaw (b. 1966), a British artist who is famous for his projects alluding to the classical art works. Mat Collishaw came to the Moscow Biennale in 2015 and was truly inspired by the intervention projects at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts. Seeing “Bacchanal” by Peter Paul Rubens from the collection of Pushkin Museum was the most impressive experience, he confessed. In April 2016, Mat Collishaw completed his new Bacchanal-themed project “Seria Ludo”, in which an animation effect is produced by the rotation of a gargantuan chandelier with splendorous baroque decorations. Being a witty metaphor of excessive worldly pleasures and sordid desires, this art work is also a great example of a contemporary high technology design. The project “Seria Ludo” will be confronted with selected paintings from the collection of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts to spark discussions about eternal values and interpretations of classical themes in the modern art.
