Item description for Ilya & Emila Emilia Kabakov: Installation & Theater by Boris Groys...
This collection of nine theatrical projects created by the team of Ilya and Emilia Kabakov explores the artistic process of two leading figures in contemporary art.
Since their immigration from Russia to the West in 1987, conceptual artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov have produced magnificent installations in a wide variety of forums: a circus stage, public square, orchestral hall, opera houses, and museums. Ilya and Emilia Kabakov's themes range from the playful to the utopian, but each reflects the artists' perspective on life in the Soviet Union. The nine projects presented in this exquisitely produced volume allow readers to observe ideas evolving from quickly sketched concepts to full-blown fantasies of enormous proportion. Drawings, watercolors, plans, models and photographs of the productions themselves are interspersed with commentary about each installation. A lengthy interview with Ilya Kabakov, who was declared one of the "ten greatest living artists" by ARTnews magazine, completes this wonderful compilation of genius at work.
