MOSCOW.- Garage Center for Contemporary Culture’s acclaimed Art Experiment will run until 23 January in Garage's new pavilion in Gorky Park.

The annual event, which began in 2010, enables visitors to interact with art in new and unexpected ways. Last year’s Art Experiment - which attracted over 6,000 visitors - invited participants to take over Garage for two days of painting, sticking, drawing, carving and baking, filling the space with their own ideas and creative energy. Participants were offered a series of surprising and surreal encounters with the magical and bizarre.

Taking inspiration from the universe and exploring the relationship between the microscopic and the macroscopic, artists from around the world have created installations that help visitors discover new ways of seeing. On entering Garage, visitors are met by the magical and incandescent CLOUD. Created by artists Caitlind r.c.Brown and Wayne Garrett and made from over 6,000 light bulbs, CLOUD allows visitors to control its illumination; collectively creating a storm, which flickers like lightning above. CLOUD provides the start of a fantastic journey, propelling the visitor through a series of dream-like encounters, discovering the secrets of the cosmos. What lies ahead will be both unexpected and wonderful; visitors are instructed to ‘be imaginative, be creative and be prepared’.

Activities
Fantasy Forest – Visitors explore the magical forest within Garage’s entrance; transforming the trees with their own drawings and illustrations. This installation encourages visitors to start thinking creatively and make their own mark before entering Art Experiment.

Portrait Studio – Visitors are encouraged to be daring and creative, inventing a new identity using performance to become a dreamer, an icon, an explorer or even an astronaut.These images are digitally layered with imagery by artist Nat Urazmetova and transformed into a photographic artwork to share with friends.

CLOUD – This large-scale interactive installation by Canadian artists Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garret invites visitors to stand beneath the ‘cloud’ and collectively make it flicker and pulsate by pulling on cords to dim and illuminate thousands of individual light bulbs.

ADA – A large helium filled ball, studded with charcoal, floats in the gallery space as part of an interactive work created by artist Karina Smigla-Bobinski. Visitors can try to control the playful inflatable installation and experiment with the marks the ball creates on the surrounding walls, which accumulate with each collision.

PODS – Singaporean artist Danielle Tay has created an extraordinary universe of ‘pods’, each offering the visitor a completely otherworldly experience. This immersive installation engages the senses of touch, smell and sound.

Micro-Worlds – Visitors can let their imaginations run free as they design and create their own miniature worlds inside a half-sphere. In this workshop, participants are given the chance to imagine and build their own ‘pods’, each containing a ‘micro universe’. These are then exhibited, so that hundreds of individual worlds fill the gallery space.

Aquarius – This labyrinth of tunnels and glowing chambers invites audiences to enter the ‘Age of Aquarius’. Artist Jason Hackenwerth’s ethereal installation takes the viewer on a symbolic journey, beyond the mind, to a place where time is suspended so that sound,movement and light may inform the heart.

Marble Fashion – Artists Hsiao-Chi Tsai and Kimiya Yoshikawa have created A Sunshine, an installation where colorful moving images are superimposedonto mirrored and white sculptural surfaces. The work offers a powerful visual experience, which at once suggests both exotic flowers and infinite, cosmological formations. Visitors are invited to create their own marble fashion responding to the installation; experimenting with light, color and pattern.

Fruit Weather – The fantastic duo Bompas & Parr return to Art Experiment with Fruit Weather, a fruit-based weather system for your tongue. The installation explodes fruit to the scale of buildings, spatializing flavor to become an immersive and inhabitable cloud.

Artists and practitioners:
Bompas & Parr (British food artists), Caitlind r.c. Brown (Canadian artist and filmmaker), Danielle Tay (Singaporean artist), Hsiao-Chi Tsai (Taiwanese artist), JasonHackenwerth (American artist), Karina Smigla-Bobinski (Polish-German artist), Kimya Yoshikawa (Japanese artist), Nat Urazmetova (Russian-British artist and media creator) and Wayne Garrett (Canadian artist and musician)

Bompas & Parr
Bompas & Parr's work focuses on theinterrelationship between synaesthesia, performance and setting. From just Sam Bompas and Harry Parr in 2007, when Bompas & Parr was founded, the studio has slowly grown to its current structure in response to the possibility ofgenerating a wide-range of projects. The studio now consists of a team of about 10 people, from cooks and specialized technicians, to architects, graphic designers and administrators. In addition to the projects realized in-house, Bompas & Parr contract structural engineers and other specialists, and collaborate with curators, cultural practitioners and scientists. They havepreviously created works for the Barbican Art Gallery; Institute of Contemporary Art, London; London Design Festival; Selfridges; San FranciscoMuseum of Modern Art; Serpentine Gallery; Victoria & Albert Museum and the Wellcome Collection.

Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett
CLOUD is co-created by Canadian artists Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett. Based in Calgary, Brown and Garrett collaborate frequently, working with diverse mediums and materials, ranging from 16mm celluloid to re-appropriated architectural waste. The duoexplores themes of public interaction, art in unexpected spaces, re-use of domestic waste and community collaboration. Their work CLOUD was first shown as part of the Nuit Blanche festival in Calgary in 2012.

Hsiao-Chi Tsai and Kimiya Yoshikawa
