ROMAN MIKHAYLOV PRESENTS A NEW INSTALLATION IN VILNIUS

08 June 2017

June 8 marks the opening of ArtVilnius’17, international fair of contemporary art. The curator program will include young Ukrainian art as well: Roman Mikhaylov is due to show his new works from Burn of the Reality series. The artist’s participation in the international program became possible thanks to the support of Zenko Foundation.

Burn of the Reality is about creation through destruction. The artist continues his experiments with fire; in his new work, he captures the moment right before inflammation. This is a certain point of no return, which leaves an indelible trace on the object but doesn’t destroy it.

“The installation is created right then and there, and this is a very important moment for me. Because in any work you can always feel the imprint of the place,” Roman Mikhaylov says about his new work.
