Nikolay Polissky, Beaubourg

“Beaubourg” is a complex metal carcass structure weaved in birch twigs. It consists of a 22 meters high tower surrounded by pipes that are twisted inside out. The artist took the traditional Russian technique of birch weaving, scaled it up and weaved the art object as if it were a giant basket. This piece of modern art was created using a nearly lost skill. The focus of the installation is the pipes designed so as to remind of the Pompidou Center tubing. The structure has a spiral staircase inside, which leads to an observation site offering an amazing view on the vast landscapes of Nikola-Lenivets and the neighboring villages. This view is the key exhibit of “Beaubourg”. The landscape object is an allusion on the French museum harmonically incorporated into the Russian landscape. (via)
