The Tail Wags the Comet
Referencing the distinctively eclectic urban landscape of Moscow that is populated with temporary structures, fake edifices, and buildings undergoing reinvention, the artist has created an immersive environment that invites visitors to discover the “secrets” of what lies behind a sequence of incongruous, yet familiar facades. Using quotidian construction materials such as brightly-colored tent cloth, roofing tiles, galvanized metal, wood and paper as well as various scents, the project lives up to the absurdity inherent in its name, through witty navigation tactics and intricate detail that at once disorients and entices the viewer as they embark on an alternative route from the entrance of the museum to the exhibition spaces on the first floor, or vice versa.
The project explores the contradictions, humor, and pathos of national and cultural identity. In describing the concept of the work—the largest work the artist has made to date— the artist says: “It is about the frustration of longing for something you will never see or achieve and the notion of a desired future that is met with nothing but mundane reality”.
