The House of Ruinart and the Cosmoscow Foundation for Contemporary Art have announced the winner of the Ruinart Art Patronat : Margot Trushina.
Margo Trushina has graduated from the Royal College of Arts and from London Chelsea College of Art and Design), and also studied at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Moscow and at the journalism department of Moscow State University. In 2015, the artist became a finalist of the British Broomhill National Sculpture Prize.
The general subject in the artist's practice is set by the environmental agenda. She explores metaphors and ways of communication with the world through light installations, sculpture, photography, and interventions. Current ecological issues and problems are perceived by the artist through the prism of personal bodily experience and aesthetic analysis of its reception, which results in creation of hybrid sculptures and «living» installations.
At Cosmoscow fair 2020, Margo Trushina will present her project "Living corner" – an interactive site and specific installation that will become a metaphor for the modern world with its radical climate changes and migration flows.
In a specially designed structure, the artist will create a mythical garden where plants will become sculptures, and sculptures will become plants or other living creatures. These hybrid objects will be suspended from the hanging and placed on vertical surfaces. Each sculpture will have its own voice, which will be activated by the movement of the fair's audience.
