Inventory Exhibition by Alan Khadikov, Moscow

August 22nd, 2013 by retail design blog

Alan Khadikov presents an exhibition project which occurred in Moscow about a week ago and it was dedicated to the history of a very particular space – the old city house of russian counts Golovins where the showroom for home fashion called Perspekta is located now. The project is called Inventory Exhibition.

The idea of the exhibition belongs to guys from Perspekta who tend to work in this awesome space now and are engaged in decoration business. First they asked a group of students from British Higher School of Art & Design to speculate about the history of the space which is a subject of their pride. The conversation was that fascinating so we, a group of designers, decided to transform it into the exhibition where the history of vicinity was told in a language of contemporary art and design.

If to imagine the life of the space as a piece of fabrics it commences as a brand new one full of colour and flexibility. The time passes and the pattern turns pale as well as the traces of coffee become ingrained. People put the patches on it and our piece of fabrics inevitably transforms into new laces. The older the fabrics the deeper and more significant the transformation.

This concerns our lives. This concerns the space we wished to tell you about.
The only thing to add is that the Inventory Exhibition was a pop up event and we, a group of artists and designers, are going to continue the project in other spaces so we could tell the audience about historical heritage in the language of art and design.
