The title of the project, “Metropolis,” alludes to the famous 1927 Fritz Lang film, a German dystopia set in an imaginary city divided into two separate levels: the upper is inhabited by the masters of life, whereas the lower is the black world of workers and machines. Seleznyov show us the two sides of a metropolis. The first is a pile of rubbish from which the city is built and which symbolizes the ‘dark,’ everyday side. This can be ‘switched’ into a romantic cityscape, as if seen from an airplane at night. The wreaths of lights delineate avenues while illuminated spots stand for residential and industrial areas. Fritz’s futuristic dystopia is again relevant in modern Russia, where there is a gulf between the super-rich and the poor. The “Metropolis” installation reveals this division with unflinching ruthlessness.
