Proving Humanity: Exhibition of young artists opens at VDNKh
Winners of the Vzlyot project present their works.

The Proving Humanity exhibition, featuring the winners in the Vzlyot project’s third season, has opened at VDNKh. The venue is the Yakovlev Yak-42 aircraft located on Industry Square.

Proving Humanity displays creations by winners in the Art & Science category. The works highlight how a new generation of artists regards the relationship between art and science. The show features six young Russian artists using different technologies.

Anastasia Alyokhina created a fantasy about how people will adorn themselves in the future and presented electronic devices for internal organs.

Yulia Glukhova, a graduate of the Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography, used computer vision technology for her REM audiovisual installation. This technology detects eye movement and blinking, so that everyone creates their own film on the display.

Denis Protopopov and Kristina Maloletkina from St Petersburg study how people interact with the world of augmented reality in their Voyer project. Visitors can see sculptures or pieces of video after downloading an app and pointing their mobile at illuminators in the plane.

In addition, a special programme is planned, featuring discussions with artists about the place and role of the human being in the modern technological world. There will also be audiovisual performances.

Opening hours: 10 am – 10 pm. The entrance fee is 100 roubles.
