Pop Artist, Olga Lomaka, unveils her giant ice cream sculpture to kick off Russian Film Week on 24th November at The Exhibitionist Hotel. An accompanying exhibition: “Posters Without Borders” has been organised by Filip Perkon, the Founding Director of Russian Film Week, with the preview party held on Thursday 28th November at 7:30pm will host a number of film stars of the industry. (NB preview event is by invitation only).
Moscream is a tongue-in-cheek installation that combines the visual imagery of the iconic Russian dome of St Basil Cathedral in Moscow, with Russia’s favourite ice cream, through the language of Pop Art. The 2.5 metre ice cream will be installed above the hotel’s entrance, a stone’s throw away from the V&A, and available for the public to see.
“The scale and kitsch design are a reflection on the mass consumption of our era, whilst the ‘ice cream dome’ acknowledges the symbolism and traditional values of Russian culture and its need to be preserved.” – said Olga Lomaka, chosen artist by Grayson Perry for the 250th year anniversary of RA Summer Exhibition.
