Manege is proud to present “New Ruins. Granite”, a street project put together in cooperation with curator Maxim Ima. In order to explore new possibilities offered by Manege’s outdoor exhibition space, we invited six street artists who work with granite and carve images using hammers and chisels. The stones have been placed on the square by Manege’s western facade. There, they stand alongside architecture which subjugates the stone and regulates its form for utility’s sake. These objects serve as a reminder of the primordial nature of things – something which constantly calls for new interpretations.
Artists: 0331с, Grisha, Eror TOI, 404, Frouone, GIWE.
“In going back to stone carving techniques, we want to say that graffiti has not only become an area of modern art, but art as a whole, going back to the primordial need of humans to create. We want to pinpoint meanings and images that reflect both modernity and the spirit of the age,” say the artists.
Now we’ve developed a 3D tour of “New Ruins. Granite”, giving you the chance to find out more about this fascinating installation.
