Vik Muniz: A Survey
14 April 2007 - 20 May 2007

The exhibition presents 50 specially selected artworks, created by Vik Muniz in 1993-2007. For their creation he used non-traditional materials, such as caviar, diamonds, chocolate, gold, soil, sugar, junk, cotton wool, peanut butter, jam, nails, yarn and even blood.

According to Vik Muniz, the process of objects creation and shooting, not the objects themselves, are the most important for him. Credo of the artist is: «There are no more objects for shooting. If you want to shoot anything, first create it». For the last 20 years Vik Muniz has been constantly expanding boundaries of modern photography and paintings. His works never reflect surrounding reality, except the one created by the artist himself. Unique installations, which are sometimes destroyed right after shooting, further live in works of Muniz.
