In his creativity, Alexander Golinsky develops the ideas of arte povera, using seemingly artless materials, such as wire, electrical tape, and construction compactor.
The pop/off /art gallery presents Alexander Golynsky’s personal exhibition “Polital” that combines works in the best traditions of arte povera, aka “poor art”. This trend originated in Italy of the 1960s, when several artists undertook to push the boundaries of creativity and use industrial materials in their artworks. Alexander Golynsky explores the poetics of simple things, creating objects from construction compactor, adhesive tape, wire, and more. By way of changing transforming familiar objects, he fills them with new content and meaning. The artists’ works impress with the complexity of architectural structures and rhythmic compositions.
