THE FALLEN SKY

BEAUFORT LOCATION: BEACH NEAR THE SIMLI DISTRICT, NIEUWPOORT

Ilya & Emilia Kabakov

°1933 & °1945, Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine ex USSR 

Ilya Kabakov makes all-in installations, also called environments, which often represent carefully furnished rooms. With a great deal of humour and irony he depicts the absurd nature of Soviet society. Nevertheless his work is more comprehensive than this ideology, and his installations tell us as much about post Stalinist Russia as about man in general. He and his wife Emilia avoid all artistic trends by telling simple stories that appeal to everyone. The Fallen Sky tells the poetic story of how a little piece of sky lands on the beach.
