Vadim Sidur Museum Opened upon Reconstruction

Museum of the sculptor Vadim Sidur in Moscow has been repaired and opened for public again.

      Vadim Sidur always worked independently and never adjoined any groups. The sculptor never chased ranks, and it had practically no exhibitions even in the homeland.  Soviet authorities did not recognize the art of Vadim Sidur and kept him as a social outcast. In spite of the fact, Vadim Sidur Museum was founded in Moscow in 1989, three years after the sculptor’s death.

      The museum permanent exposition is titled In Search of the Person. One of the sculptor’s major themes was the borderline between life and death. Vadim Sidur first faced it at the age of 19 years, when he was severely wounded in his face.

      The peak of his and his best-known project is Coffin Art. These are not just art objects made of junk kept in his studio for years, but also philosophy. Every one of us could avoid being born but we all have to die. It is frank art of metaphoric anguish. While playing with shapes, the sculptor aspired to reveal the essence of a person in most authentic way.
