After Berlin, Bogota, New York, London, and St. Petersburg, the 9th CYFEST opened in Moscow with its dedicated exhibit on display from June 15, 2016 at the Ground Moscow.
This time CYLAND MediaArtLab presented ‘Wish You Were Here’, multimedia installations by Alexander Terebenin and Alexander Shishkin-Hokusai. Alexander Dashevsky speaks on the exhibition project:
“Talks about the forthcoming Apocalypse, collapse and end are a familiar background in the life of a contemporary person. A disaster, be it technogenic or social, geopolitical or biological, as an image of the future holds a firm place in human minds. And, most likely, there is a reason for this. The existing reality serves as a certain waiting room before the authentic stable state of post- apocalypse. What does art do in a charred world? What is an artist up to among the ruins? How does culture live amidst debris of the former world? These quasifictional retrofuturistic questions preoccupy the artists Alexander Terebenin and Alexander Shishkin-Hokusai.”

The exhibition features multimedia, kinetic, and sculptural objects, as well as experiments with space itself.
June 15, the opening night, also revealed CYLAND artists’ Alexey Grachev and Sergey Komarov live performance combining digital and analog sound synthesis technologies in order to achieve a sound minimalism and a continuity of creative process during the creation of musical compositions and forms where the choice comes down to the subjective tendency of each one to a certain sounding.
The 9th CYFEST ‘Wish You Were Here’ on display until July 31, 2016 at Ground Moscow (Irina Levchenko str, 2).
