Alexej Meschtschanow

Examines the physical and aesthetic qualities of established social conventions through sculpture and installation. Studying our inmediate social environments with an analytic and compassionate eye, he assembles found objects, derelic furniture and archival photography.

His work focuses on the imaginative potential and psycologycal depths involved in the construction of identities, compulsion toward self realization and the socially driven urge for optimization. His sculptural works interlock two communicative modes, the passive and the active. The end effect of his creative output culminates in figures of poetic melancholy, attempting to break out of the vicious cycles of fordist, totalitarian or fetishist forms of functionalism.
