“Protosymphony” appeared in the park

20 August 2020
“Protosymphony” multimedia installation has been installed in Nature Center pavilion next to Florarium. This is an art object nominated for the 1st Moscow Art Prize. The author is artist Alexey Dyakov.


“Protosymphony” installation is dedicated to the composer Sergei Prokofiev. The work is made of wood and consists of three parts. The base is a stump on which a pine post is installed, and on top there are light elements. The art object is complemented by a musical composition created by the artist — he was inspired by the march from “The Love for Three Oranges” opera by Sergei Prokofiev, and reproduces the sounds of chopping axes.  “Music is born in the earth, and it goes to heaven” — the author's slogan for this work.

 “Melodies come from musical instruments, which are works of art themselves. If we take a violin, in its original form it grows in the form of a tree. This is about the lower part of the composition in the form of a beautiful stump. The tree is cut down by a master who will make a violin, endow it with beautiful features, a silhouette, and this is about the second part of the composition — a post that has acquired a man-made shape. And the third part in the form of a luminous finial refers us to the moment when the musician picks up the violin and makes sounds. The light symbolizes music, subtle waves and vibrations that have a good effect on listeners,” said Alexey Dyakov.

Earlier, two more objects were installed on the territory of the park in the frames of the 1st Moscow Art Prize. In Media Center, you can watch a short film by Dmitry Venkov “The Hymns of Muscovy”, and in Ice Cave there is "Noah's Ark", the work by the Russian artist Maxim Kharlov. This object is a part of After the Icon project, the 1st Moscow Art Prize nominee.
In the near future, all the park’s exhibition places and landscape zones, Soaring and the underground parking will become exhibiting sights for the works of the nominees of the 1st Moscow Art Prize.
