The artist works with various materials and textures and explores the urban environment through the forms of patterned constructions and structures. 

About the Exhibition 

Andrey Syailevs work is an attempt to materialize the flow of time, to see and explore the architectonics of its spatial slices. 

Within this exhibition, the artist develops the motives of his projects and series of works of recent years. Andrey Syailev works in line with the traditions of arte povera using such materials as brick, tile, or a panel segment of the Khrushchev five-storey building. The image of a mosaic flow of photographic miniatures with images of fragmented facades in Andrey Syailevs works of the 2000s is embodied in an increasing number of forms. This technique was tested by the author for the first time in public art. He applied it to the wall and then used it in volumetric spaces. Now it is increasingly often used in individual sculptures, works on fabric, and prints on the ground.

Printed brick is the second key form in the exhibition. The print makes it possible to create optical illusions thanks to playing with scales or mimicking certain textures with others. The author also introduces texts, including online ones, into his works. 

A kind of container of impressions, a compact cell, is the central metaphor of the exhibition. The presented patterned constructions work as visual grids structuring perceptual experience. Reality is elusive and the experience of its perception is indistinguishable. However, the artist says that, in art, it is possible to uncover and present the very architectonics of this experience in a moment of shift in the viewer's perception. In this respect, art is close to cinematography (Konstantin Zatsepin, art critic).
