Installation: carpets, fans, lamp, news paper, motion detector.
Carpets, apparently ordinary, were hanging in Ossetian, Ingush and Russian houses. Houses with high strong walls, on the slopes of mountains, under a high sky. It seemed that nothing was stronger than a home, in which was safe and warm. But disasters break to people "from behind the carpet". This is our common home, because you can not destroy someone else's house without destroying your own.

The Moon of Hitomaro. 2019. Old boat, metal, arcrylic glass, LED. Setouchi Triennale from 26th April. Shamijima, Sakeido, Seto Inland Sea, Japan.
In the sea of heaven
Cloud waves rise and the moon boat sails
Into a forest of stars,
Then is seen no more
Kakinomoto Hitomaro 『Manyoshu』(Volume 7, 1068)
|The 50-year anniversary of the first human step on the Moon is an opportunity to study, present and celebrate the long history that links humans with this familiar celestial body, through the artworks and objects that embody the countless visions and emotions it has inspired. This five-part exhibition is a journey to the Moon, through dimensions both real and imaginary. Each stage takes visitors on a voyage through time, revealing artistic creations from Antiquity to the modern day, produced mainly in Europe but also by African, Arab and Far Eastern civilisations.|
The central figure of the project is Tishkov himself. The space is organized precisely by his works - the “Ion Sun” (2006) hanging from the ceiling, whose rays are made of macaroni, the “Knitted rocket for space travel” (2011), the huge ball “The Return of Jupiter” (2018), referring to Kazimir Malevich’s idea of future on a distant planet. By itself, this object is devoid of artistic and reminds, rather, an exhibit of the planetarium. But here it is located above another installation - “Sugar Architectones” (2010), and this combination is impressive.
La Lune, de la réalité au rêve, au Grand Palais
Cinquante ans après que l'homme a marché sur la Lune, le Grand Palais célèbre la longue histoire qui relie l'humanité à cet astre familier, à travers les œuvres d'art et les objets qui l'évoquent. Du voyage réel de la mission Apollo 11 de juillet 1969 au voyage imaginaire, qui transforme la Lune en divinité de forme humaine, qui en fait une source de fantasme et de peurs ou qui invite à une promenade méditative sous son regard. Du 3 avril au 22 juillet 2019.

Drafty House. 2018.
Installation: carpets, fans, lamp, motion detector.
Carpets, apparently ordinary, were hanging in Ossetian, Ingush and Russian houses. Houses with high strong walls, on the slopes of mountains, under a high sky. It seemed that nothing was stronger than a home, in which was safe and warm. But misfortune breaks into people's lives literally "from behind the carpet", destroying the cozy space of the house. This is our common home, because you can not destroy someone else's house without destroying your own.
