Being and Time #2 2018

Time is defined by the mechanical movement of the stars.

Being is a timeless reality. Time can’t be beaten, but you can understand it through the study of being. Art is a graceful instrument for the studying of this process.

This project tells viewers about the Heavenly Geometry of cosmic bodies. Photographs of galactic accumulations, nebulae and meteorite belts take on sculptural, material guises.

The art objects presented turn into «cosmic molds» that present the visible forms of universal existence to the viewer. Placing these works in everyday reality, the author demonstrates a cosmic, sublime law within a perceptual system that is familiar to the viewer.

The sculptural constructions are an attempt by the artist to show the heavenly formation of new forms that exists beyond our conceptions of time and being.

Valentin was born in Moscow and started his artistic career as a sculptor by entering an art institution. After graduation he became an assistant at his teacher’s workshop – a famous sculptor and metal artist Victor Sidorenko. That was the place where he could master his skills in work with a material and soon he started his own experiments with plastic forms as a reflection of his philosophical ideas. Valentin is the member of Moscow Artists Union, sculpture section. He was included in top-100 Renowned Russian Artists (InArt 2018). His exhibition Archeology of Memory was showcased as a collateral event of the 5th International Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art.
