2. The Humanized
By using language
of formalism in representation of space and
material advant-gard, trends of the first half
of the 20th century have completed the interest
of fine arts in visible physical world as a
main plot of the work.
The new discovery
of the composition of the structure of the hierarchically
oriented elements by the artists of the Russian
avant-garde (Tatlin, Malevich, and others) was
not realized in the art of the subsequent generations
of the ideas of the avant-garde has been completed
by the present moment with action, with performance,
in which the problem of the hierarchical symbolizing
of space as the principle of its organization
has practically remained unaffected.
compass of the structure of the living space
as the medium of existence - the religious view
of the world - has been lost by the present-time
secularized society, but the need for having
such a compass has survived. Such a need is
deposited in the human being both biologically
A lofty example
of humanized, or, to be more precise, of spiritualized,
space is presented by the Church. The spiritualized
space of the Church, its ascending forms, are
supported with the canonical depictions which
are plastically repeating the movement of the
of spiritually-hierarchically, symbolically
built space continues to be felt today both
in the fine arts (in their new forms) and in
architecture and demands of an attention.
is aimed, as the first step, at a limited task
- that of changing the existing interior (actually
or theoretically existing interior) with making
its space subordinate to a sculptural composition
one that has been created and installed inside
the interior in a manner providing for its spatial
and vectorial characteristics finding reflection
in the new architecture of the given interior.
It is suggested
that various projections of the sculpture or
projections of its elements shall be superimposed
upon the forms of the newly emerged interior.
The changed forms of the interior may have geometrical
and/or organic character, and they may interact
with the already available constructions by
including them into their structure.
of the project consists in creating a situation
of a more comfortable perception of the emotional
and intellectual components of the central sense-making
work of art, more comfortable than it usually
happens under the conditions that prevail at
an exposition or in a museum.
that emerges may take account of the functional
tasks of the room and may become its symbol.
and the model of the interior shall be created
as one project and as independent works of art.
It shall be possible to realize the new interior
as an experiment from light materials in actual
version of the project is being made simultaneously.
