Fābula gallery was founded in 2019 in Moscow as a project which would marry contemporary art and collectible design. The border between these spheres is ephemeral and often defined by the functionality of an object. The gallery strongly believes in the ideal of an organic synthesis of all art forms: the juxtaposition and interaction of the physical objects around us generates new meaning, new scenarios in which we are living.
The gallery collaborates with the artists who belong to different generations and work with various media and techniques, although they are all united by the same artistic vision. Fābula gallery believes in a coy, non-dogmatic approach to art history as the curatorial method behind its collection and exhibitions.
Fābula gallery also functions as a curatorial platform in the field of collectible design. It sees its goal in the development and popularisation of this sphere in Russia. In a series of collaborations entitled fābula X the gallery have created unique objects at the intersection of art and product design, all based on the sketches and prototypes created by artists and architects. Going beyond the scope of their traditional practice, the gallery’s artists enter into dialogue with traditional craft guilds and the modern manufacturers with which the gallery collaborates.
