Item description for Ilya Kabakov: Public Projects or The Spirit of A Place by Angela Vettese, Ilya Kabakov, Emilia Kabakov & Kabakov Emilia...
During the summer of 2000 Ilya Kabakov was visiting professor at the Corso Superiore di Arte Visiva at the Ratti Foundation in Como. Together with his wife, Emilia, he offered the students his ideas on total installations, exploring their poetry and meanings. This volume documents the end-of-course exhibition of the students as well as Kabakov's public space installation. In Kabakov's words: ''Every place that has been inhabited in history by man has a special OEura' that surrounds today's inhabitants and will be there for tomorrow's as long as it isn't destroyed. It takes time to create an aura and nothing for it to be destroyed... I am not fond of destruction; we should respect traditions, beliefs, legends and memories. The aura that comes from our past keeps us from falling into oblivion; it is what we call our culture, our inner world.''
