The tenth Garage Atrium Commission is an installation by Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno, who is known for his works at the intersection of art, life science, and the social sciences. The installation for Garage—a mirrored sphere suspended in the air—is a product of Saraceno’s long-standing interest in constructing realizable utopias.
This aerial invitation encourages viewers to un-tether a new era of planetary attunement free from borders and fossil fuels; one that speaks to the poetic and tangible logic of the international and interdisciplinary community Aerocene.
Inspired by the ideas of Western visionaries like Frei Otto and Richard Buckminster Fuller, Saraceno’s aerosolar sculptures also resonate with projects by Soviet avant-garde artists, such as the architectons of Kazimir Malevich, Georgy Krutikov's Flying City or Vladimir Tatlin’s Letatlin.
Curator: Iaroslav Volovod
