Konstantin Benkovich's exhibition Pop Over

06.02.2018

Pop Over. Выставка Константина Беньковича — Санкт-Петербург 2018 - Музей современного искусства Эрарта

Konstantin Benkovich uses steel frame, not a pencil: news events incarnated in the form of a steel structure. For example, the idea of creating a street object Pacman appeared as a response to ruble collapse, mortgage crisis and street protests.

Protest rhetoric is obvious in Benkovich's works: his favorite object is the cage as a visible sign of unfreedom. The artist's objects look at the exhibition Pop Over as if they had burnt out, exposing the frame.
