November 1, 2013 will see the opening of the interactive exhibition Joseph Brodsky’s One and a Half Rooms in the ZIL Cultural Center, Moscow.
For a month the installation was exhibited outdoors, in the Malaya Sadovaya Street in St. Petersburg and now will be presented in Moscow.
Joseph Brodsky's One and a Half Rooms is an architectural and poetic metaphor of the poet’s room in a communal flat of the Muruzi House in 24, Liteiny Avenue, where he lived from 1955 to 1972, until his emigration from the USSR.
The architectural message, as well as the video and audio accompaniment of the installation One and a Half Rooms expresses the idea of sensorial immersion into the space of Josef Brodsky’s spiritual and creative life, which fitted into 10 square meters, but embraced the whole world in it.
The exhibition will be held till November 22.
