Back to galleries list of project

13.05.2007 - The opening of the exhibition of Brazilian artist Vik Muniz “Vik Muniz: A Survey” in PinchukArtCentre

The Centre for Contemporary Art PinchukArtCentre (Kyiv, Ukraine) presented a personal exhibition of the world famous Brazilian artist and photographer Vik Muniz "Vik Muniz: Survey". The works of the artist were exhibited in the largest museums of the world and at the most prestigious exhibitions of the last decade. At press-conference on the occasion of presentation the president of PinchukArtCentre Peter Doroshenko noticed, that it is the first exhibition of Vik Muniz to be seen in the Eastern Europe.

In Vik Muniz opinion, the PinchukArtCentre part as an institution is very important for contemporary art development in Ukraine. "In Brazil, for example, the similar centers also presented the works of international artists. And at the same time they showed to the world the Brazilian artists, whose works today are represented almost in all famous galleries in the world. Exactly in the same way, as I can see, PinchukArtCentre begins to acquaint the world art-community with the Ukrainian artists".

About the exhibition and the artworks presented there Vik Muniz said, that the process of objects creation and shooting, not the objects themselves, are the most important for him. Credo of the artist is: "There are no more objects for shooting. If you want to shoot anything, first create it". For the last 20 years Vik Muniz has been constantly expanding boundaries of modern photography and paintings. His works never reflect surrounding reality, except the one created by the artist himself. Unique installations, which are sometimes destroyed right after shooting, further live in works of Muniz.

The "Vik Muniz: Survey" exhibition presents 50 specially selected artworks, created by Vik Muniz in 1993-2007. For their creation he used non-traditional materials, such as caviar, diamonds, chocolate, gold, soil, sugar, junk, cotton wool, peanut butter, jam, nails, yarn and even blood.
