Projects by ::vtol:: and Andrey Kuzkin at the 13th Kandinsky Prize nominees' exhibition

The 13th Kandinsky Prize nominees’ exhibition opened at Moscow Museum of Modern Art. Among the nominees are ::vtol:: and Andrey Kuzkin in the nomination ‘Project of the Year’:​

— ‘Interface of the Ongoing’, ::vtol::
This exhibition is a specially constructed space, a technological ‘total installation’ whose elements are 'non-functional' machines which actions are subject to their own, hacked logic. By making sense of natural and social processes through technology, ::vtol:: tells stories through the devices.​
— ‘Prayers and Heroes’, Andrey Kuzkin
The production of this installation over 3 years has been an important performative practice for the artist. The work is a kind of tribute that Andrey pays to the country's tragic history. The figures are all made from bread and the heads are covered with the artist's blood.​
The exhibition is on view till 21 November.
The winners will be announced on 17 November.​
