Urbi et Orbi at the 6th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art

In association with the Museum Center of RGGU CYLAND MediaArtLab organized a special international project at the 6th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art. Held from September 18 through October 18, 2015 Urbi et Orbi (To the City and the World…) exhibition presented the works of Russian and South Korean artists.


The Russian part of Urbi et Orbi project is curated by Annushka Brochet, Nataliya Kamenetskaya, and CYLAND artists Alexandra Dementieva and Anna Frants. The exhibition features works made in CYLAND MediaArtLab by Ludmila Belova, Elena Gubanova and Ivan Govorkov, Alexey Grachev, Alexandra Dementieva, Victoria Ilyushkina, and Anna Frants.


The works of Russian and South Korean artists presented in this exhibition preserve features of the artists’ cultural traditions, and yet are universal artistic messages. Multimedia projects, an important part of the exhibition, cons truct cross-cultural dialog-journeys that interactively correspond to the current direction of technological communications between Russia and South Korea. These journeys into the immaterial, which have successfully coexisted with human reality for a long time, are a synthesis of fiction, East Asian philosophy, European culture and geopolitical ideas.
