Staircase, Färgfabriken

The young Russian designer and artist Andrey Lublinsky is making an installation in the stairways of Färgfabriken.

Lubinsky shows his mobile exhibition Soft and Hard, which, as the title indicates, is about contrasts of different kind, between power and empathy, between sign and sensualism. The exhibition is made of 21 monochrome plates (as a tribute to Kasimir Malevitj) on which are mounted little white soft toys that the artist has made. Instead of faces different signs and symbols have been applied in each soft toy, logotypes, graphical symbols, signs of power, signs referring to artists etc. The heritage from Malevitj is put in relation to a contemporary situation.
