Visual artist Quayola employs digital media to create a new take on modern art in the Renaissance and Baroque tradition. His Sculpture Factory with deconstructions of Michelangelo’s classical sculptures are on show at the ARTISTS & ROBOTS exhibition from 10 June to 10 September 2017 in the art pavilion at the Expo 2017 in the capital of Kazakhstan.
~Quayola’s work in the EXPO art pavilion is a homage to one of the most famous artists of all time. The artist engages with Michelangelo’s unfinished Prigioni (Prisoners) sculpture group and interprets it by employing digital manipulations in a futuristic design language. In a three-week live performance from the start of the exhibition an industrial robot will fashion larger-than-life white 3D sculptures out of rigid polystyrene foam blocks. The sculptural products will be documented and on show in a video installation until the end of the EXPO.
Quayola will be present at the opening of the EXPO art pavilion in Astana on 10 June 2017.
