themed around the Soviet art philosophy of constructivism (the appeal of the function purpose of art , rather than aesthetic relevance) , the piece seeks to express much more than just its visually presence, and aesthetic appeal, but also carrying through its primary function as a multimedia collapsible modullar wooden struture; held together by metal elements.
the general from of the pavilion is a hollow wooden cuboid, with the internal horizontal wooden framing ; perpendicular to the vertical supporting beams holding the structure, and a lengthy supporting cross-hinged wooden beams which expands, and contracts to allow for the convenience of roofing ; and when needed.
The external coverings are a series of water resistant materials protecting the interiors space. and which could be hung separately to adjust lighting and ambiance in minute measures. another important function of the The curtains mechanism” is to allow for activities happening within the space to be visible or hidden from the outside.
Acting as a social gathering point during the day and an open-air cinema at night, at the Venice Art Biennale 2017 exhibition, and with its Space Force Construction the structure takes nudge a Russian history– a reflection on the centenary of the Soviet Revolution.
