Perm State Art Gallery (Perm, Russia)
The art project Cycle Perm works artistically with seven Christian wooden sculptures from Perm State Art Gallery. I mix four art forms: sculpture, ballet, painting and music. It resulted in seven pictorial artworks that portray some of the feelings and emotions we find embedded in the sculptures. At the same time, the ballet dancers from Perm Ballet, helped me create my project.
In like fashion, the seven artworks works together with another sensual dimension, namely music. Hence, it reinforces the feelings the sculptures embed. I choose to work with song, as music is in line with the Russian Orthodox Church tradition.
