Alexej Meschtschanow examines the physical and aesthetic qualities of established social conventions through sculpture and installation. Studying our immediate social environments with an analytic and compassionate eye, he assembles found objects, derelict furniture and archival photography.
His work focuses on the imaginative potential and psychological depths involved in the construction of identities, compulsion toward self-realization and the socially driven urge for optimization.
With a work characterized by the gesture of holding, retaining, and attaching, from 2017 symbols of movement have incorporated to his language. In a time when it seems we have accomplished the dream of absolute mobility, when the movement of humans, goods or even social imperatives is no longer a great challenge, Unexpected Moves offers a tragicomic and abstract vision about the different realities that move humanity.
